Many reasons to love pie. I love a good pie to finish a meal or even have pie as a full meal in my travels. I have not been shy about trying a new pie every now and then.
By definition, a pie is a filling with a pastry crust. It is versatile and so I arranged these pies in no particular order, with their diverse distinctions. Here are
1.) Shepherd's Pie at Flamenco Bar and Cafe
This savory pie that can be found in Burgos-Gomez Street, Cagayan de Oro City. It is comfort food made real. A hearty and heavy stew is under this layer of mashed potato sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
2.) Pistachio Cheesecake of Toby's Estate
I only discovered this after my mom ordered it one day in a Toby's Estate in Salcedo Village, Makati City. It was love at first taste for this indulgent creamy cheesecake. Only because before trying this cheesecake, I only knew of the Toby's Estate Bucky, a flourless chocolate cake + brownie hybrid.
3.) Banoffee Pie of Banapple
This is what made Banapple famous. I simply could not skip this in this list. Whether in Ayala Triangle (Makati City) or McKinley Hill (Bonifacio Global City) their banoffee pie is consistently pleasing to have, with a bonus dose of potassium.
4.) Mud Pie at Hungry Plate
Sweettooth with a MAJOR CHOCOLATE CRAVING?! This is the answer. This chocolate ice cream, chocolate cake, cookie crumble, chocolate sauce, with a mini Ice Cream drop is found in Corrales St., Cagayan de Oro City.
5.)Sweet Potato Pie at Pilian Cafe
If the chocolate overdose in #4 won't do for you, nearby the same Corrales street, Cagayan de Oro City is a Vegetarian Lifestyle cafe that serves a homey sweet potato pie. You do not need to be a vegetarian to enjoy this.
6.) Egg Pie of Cecil's
A pie that is simple, yet so lovely is this Egg Pie. Find Cecil's in Divisoria Pabayo, Cagayan de Oro City. Don't just get a slice, get an entire pie and share it with your loved ones. They will love you more for it.
7.) Limone Santi of Cafe Mary Grace
Limone Santi will take you by surprise with the tug-of-war of sweet and tangy tastes. This pie is an adventure on its own. NAIA Terminal-3 4th floor, Manila was where I had this and it was lovely. Great with a cup of tea, this makes a nice afternoon tea pie.
If you have reached this far into the article and still wonder why on my title the word PiDay is "wrongly spelt", *facepalm*, I meant it to refer to the date, March 14. Otherwise written as 3.14
...yes, the mathmatical pi. ;)
On to my next munchtrip.
Catch ya later, fellow munchters.
