SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
This rustic little pie-shop is run by Lindsey, an ex-fashion designer who taught herself to bake while she was in Europe. The pies list is a who's-who of the classics; apple pies, blueberry pies, cheese pies, cream pies, pumpkin pie, for between 38-48rmb per slice, or 238-298rmb for the whole thing. Although there are only about 10-15 on the list at any one time, they've got something like 30 flavors, and rotate flavors out regularly. Lychee pie last week! Fig pie this week! They've also got a handful of tarts, financiers, brownies and madeleines. Also quiche. Flavor-wise, they're toeing the line for a local market not used to being overwhelmed by sugar and cinnamon, but it's still some all-American goodness in pie shape. You can get pie by the slice on Sherpas, though if you want a whole pie, best to call them to arrange it (and check if they have the pies available).
"I want them ALL!" was the first sentence came out of my mouth when standing in front of the counter. The two of us ordered two for each and planned to have a second round, but then realised we could only share a third one, so we decided to add a scoop of ice-cream on their best-selling apple pie.
Coconut cream pie and potato & satori cheese quiche for the first round. Point-added for the waitress offering to heat the quiche. The potato wasn't entirely mashed but had cubes in it and a crisp crust. It turned out coconut cream wasn't only coconut and cream; there's a layer of chocolate mousse that took away the coconut taste. The quiche won this round.
The apple pie was surprisingly good with sip of warm orange blossom tea. You still can feel the coldness of the ice-cream, the aroma of the tea, cinnamon and apple mix and fill up the nose. It was served cold, though. A warm apple pie would be lovely in autumn time.
Time stopped when sitting outside, enjoying a delicious slice in a rainy Saturday afternoon.
Note: only three tea tables in the shop, more seats available outside, allowing you to have a nice open-air pie moment. Or just grab a slice and take a nice walk.
I feel like four American Pie movies was really pushing it. Is there such a thing as too much American Pie? A new shop in Jing'an doesn't think so, being entirely dedicated to the art of pie-making. Not Pie Society pies, of the British variety -- these are some wholesome, all-American, stars-and-stripes pies. God...
