New Year's Eve Dinner from The Pie Hole

Growing up, one of the practices or superstitions we always hear is how you should have round fruits at the table to welcome the New Year. I remember we will always have grapes, oranges, apples, among others, at our table alongside the usual media noche (New Year's Eve Dinner), which almost always includes Lechon.

Hubby said we should continue the tradition by having round or circular things at our table. Last 2017, we ordered pizza and Timbits. This year we decided on pie and Filipino snacks from SM Delights.

NYE Dinner from The Pie Hole

I ordered four different savoury pies from The Pie Hole. I made the mistake of ordering a frozen chicken pot pie (#facepalm). We don't have an oven. As if the heavens knew that I made a mistake, I ordered an air fryer night of the 29th, and it arrived the following day, which allowed us to cook the frozen pie.

I love the crust in both pies. A note for future self - I prefer chicken pot pie over gruyere, leek, and potato pie. I still haven't tried the other two pies, and we'll update this post once I did.

January 3, 2021 Update:

We ate the two other pies yesterday, and I love the Spinach and Feta Pie over the Beef Bourguignon Pie.

Below is my preference list for future me:
  1. Spinach and Feta Pie
  2. Chicken Pot Pie
  3. Beef Bourguignon Pie
  4. Gruyere, Leek & Potato Pie
The crust is perfect for all the pies, though. I think my brother would enjoy any of their pies.
