Amira’s nilupak, a local kakanin made from cassava
Amira’s Buco Tart Haus also started as a stop-over on SVD Road along Aguinaldo Highway for people to take home some local delicacies. Amira’s specialty products are buco tart (PhP170 per box) and nilupak, a local favorite afternoon snack made from cassava. In one corner of the shop, goods from the local government initiative One Town, One Product (OTOP) are also displayed for sale.
