Happy Pi Day!

Happy Pi Day! To celebrate today's Pi Day, hubby and I went to Granville Island Public Market in search of pie. I didn't know that there's a store that specializes in the cake! It's like pie heaven.

A La Mode

Located inside the Public Market, A La Mode offers a wide selection of homemade sweet and savoury pies. Whether you’re after a toasty beef pot pie or a sweet slice of lemon meringue, we’ve got what you’re looking for. Enjoy a slice in the market or take a whole pie home to share.

My Pick

We decided to try Pecan Pie (my fave) and Apple Pie (because it's safe). Our assessment is pecan pie over apple pie, but it was the BEST apple pie we EVER tried. I don't know why, but in the Philippines, when we try apple pie, it always seems sour.

Pi Day story

In my last 2 years in the Philippines, we celebrate Pi Day with a dear friend. Unfortunately, around our neighbourhood, there's not one pie source, and we always end up eating at fast-food chain Jollibee because they have Peach Mango Pie, which is not really a pie. I am not sure what type of pastry it is.

Meanwhile, last year, I decided to buy a pie from Save on Foods. It was better than I expected to come from a grocery store, but it was not as delicious (not even close) to the Pecan Pie from A La Mode.
