Nang Palang’s Buko Pie

Nang Palang’s Buko pie is Oton’s pride and is a well-known pasalubong for tourists when in the area.

Started in 1972 by Mrs. Elena Tingson, the pie has become a favorite of many Ilonggos. It has become synonymous not only to Oton but to Iloilo. Ninety percent of their sales daily come from selling buko pie which they can dispose a number of 300 boxes daily.

There are also variations of the pie, which are similar but use slightly different ingredients, such as buko-pandan, egg, mango, pineapple, buko-langka, buko-pina, ube and chicken. They use only the freshest ingredients, which is why their pies differ from any other available in the market, as it is thick and sticky. They also sell bibingka, cassava cake and processed food as well.

For orders and for a quick tour at their processing area, please contact Mrs. Elena Tingson at (033) 3360954 or 09398046202.
