Along the road trip home my mom asked to stop by Summit Ridge in Tagaytay to buy some Ube Halaya from Amira's Buko Tart Haus. Amira's Buko Tart Haus used to be located at the roadside, its former location was somewhere near Splendido.
Now it has a space in Summit Ridge which also houses a supermarket and other restaurants like, Ted's La Paz Bachoy, a Shakey's, and a Bacolod Chicken Inasal among others.
It is located on the second floor of the building and is easily visible upon going up the stairs.
The store is fairly spacious with coffee tables and chairs if you wish to dine in, but the ambience is not worth staying for. You're better of buying pastries here then munch on them on the starbucks downstairs. The walls are stark white and there are shelves showcasing their products. The only pop of color here is the brightly colored counter. The place is clean and the feel is "maaliwalas".
We ordered our ubeng halaya which costs 180 each and we were out the store in no time. The service is fast and the servers, friendly.
The Ubeng Halaya
Their ubeng halaya is really yummy. The texture is nice unlike buying those fish shaped ubes at the supermarket.
Another thing that this store is famous for is their buco tarts, they are good for those who can't seem to finish a whole slice of buko pie. We didn't get one this time, but its so good that once when my uncle was in the hospital his special request was that we bring him those tarts when we were on the way to visit him.
