The Buko Roll and Lechon Bread craze hits Laoag

Buko Roll

K’s Bakeshop and Delicacies, originally from Tuguegarao City, arrives in Laoag, offering fresh ways to love bread. Karen Bayog’s twist to the buko pie, a bread roll filled with glazed young coconut meat, is attracting even rich kids I know who eat more sosyal pastries. I tried it myself and found it unique. It’s almost like fresh from the oven pan de coco, but with more bite and oomph. The healthier lechon (hahah, budget lechon), is sweet bread formed in the shape of a pig. A tad sweeter that panaderia monay, says Louie, the manager I suppose.

Their cookies are supersized. Custard cake comes also in mamon size. They accept orders for customized rolls and cakes. Though located west of the business district of Laoag, it is close to the bus terminals, particularly RCJ, Fariñas Trans and Maria de Leon and government offices. They are open 24 hours a day, so K’s Bakeshop is a welcome relief to many.

I saw my favorite moon cookies, you know those plain, crumbly old-fashioned cookies.
