A curious bakery in Iloilo is known as Buho Bakery. Buho means “hole” in llonggo. The name comes from the custom of dispensing early morning or late evening bread from a little hole in the wall, a buho.
Foo Lan Sew started the bakery in the mid-20th century. The hard-working man’s store was open 24 hours. So for security reasons, he had a little buho made, by which his store is still known today.
