There are fake Buko Pies (Coconut Pie) being sold in Manila. If you ever ride a public transportation in the Philippines, particularly buses it’s very common that they would ask you to buy one. There are also vendors in the streets or shops where you can find a Buko Pie. You would know that this is a fake one because when you see the ingredients, majority of the inside are just starch/flour and there are just few strips of coconut inside. A real coconut/buko pie is made of real coconut ingredients inside and consists of majority of it as you bite them. To avoid this instead of buying in the streets, buy in stores through malls and certified souvenir stores.
