Something Special

I've been on a food blogging hibernation for about the length of mercury retrograde now (glad that I have something to blame my procrastination for.. hehehe) and since it turned direct motion again, I feel renewed about food blogging again. And as a special treat, and because I got lucky to be at the right place also, I'm sharing one of Los Banos, Laguna's very yummy buko pie. It's been around like forever.

I remember that we always go to their store (the only one that time) somewhere near UP Los Banos. Our summers became much more special because of it. Imagine a child's delight after a refreshing dip in the famous hot springs of Pansol, Laguna then driving all the way up to Los Banos to feast on Lety's Buko Pie.

And since daughter doesn't have class today and we promised Popsie (my uncle) that we'll be accompanying him to Laguna, I remembered Lety's when we were on our way home. Luckily, they now have a branch somewhere near the boundary of Pansol and Los Banos so we didn't go to UPLB. On the other hand, I think we also missed the chance to explore UPLB. Oh wells, there's always another time. :)



I love the bright and cheerful yellow and green logo of Lety's.


That's my cousin-in-law, waiting for our boxes!



I remember years ago that Lety's opened a stall in SM Megamall foodcourt. Sadly, it didn't last. I guess people in Manila are much more familiar with Collette's, another famous name when it comes to buko pie. And the buko pie still tastes the same. I love it when stores, restaurants doesn't change or scrimp on ingredients just because they become famous.


Espasol. I love the box! So lovely with the peek-a-boo cover.


This is not the usual cute espasol that you can buy. These are huge espasol. However, I feel that it lacks some flavor or ingredients. I just can't remember where in Quezon can you find the yummiest espasol. But its good and filling.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
