Amira’s Buco Tart Haus in Tagaytay: Delightful Treats On the Go
Amira’s is a very familiar name when it comes to pasalubong (take-home) delicacies from Tagaytay, although it’s not exactly the namesake of the woman behind its success.
Amira’s Buco Tart Haus is a modest store that has a huge selection of sweet treats and other local delicacies.
Started by Virgie Malipol as a home-based business in the 90’s, Amira’s Buco Tart Haus is now a favorite stopover in Tagaytay for their delicious tarts. They are especially known for their pioneer and best-selling Buco tarts which are made with generous coconut fillings in a creamy and crunchy crust.

Their various cheese tarts and egg tarts are also a crowd-drawer. Dessert lovers will surely love the luscious flavors of Amira’s mango, blueberry and cheese tarts, which are best eaten chilled.

A small store like Amira’s can’t be overlooked with its bright pink signage. It can be spotted along Aguinaldo Highway corner SVD Road, just a few minutes away from Pink Sisters Convent in Tagaytay.
