The New York Times boldly declared that "pie is the food of the heroic," and that "no pie eating nation can ever be vanquished," in an editorial back in 1902. A century later, you can argue that the center of geopolitics is slowly shifting to the east, and the New York Times editorial is no longer relevant. Then again, who really cares? All I know is that these savory pies from Pie Face still makes my day so much better...
Pie Face opens its second branch in Eastwood City, serving its wide selection of signature meat pies, along with its equally popular sweet pies and award-winning Australian Di Bella coffee blends. And just like the New York Times editorial, I'm feeling "heroic" today, and I'm going for a Pie Face Sack, with four savory meat pies from Pie Face.
Still warm, I opened my Pie Face Sack as the comforting buttery aroma of freshly baked Aussie meat pies fill the air. Baked fresh in-store everyday with the finest ingredients, the handcrafted pies with its light and flaky crust and sumptuous savory filling are just what you need to make the day right.
After sampling authentic Aussie-style meat pies for the first time at Pie Face (more on that initial experience on my previous post here), I was more than glad to hear that Pie Face now has a second branch much closer to home. And I find myself there at the Eastwood branch in no time. A savory quartet of meat pies from Pie Face just makes the day seem right, and an otherwise ordinary day special, with the (clockwise from top left) Philly Cheese Steak, Chicken and Mushroom, Classic Aussie Mince, and the new Lamb Pot Pie.
The delicate yet creamy notes of the Chicken and Mushroom contrasts with the bold flavors of the beefy Classic Aussie Mince, made with premium Australian beef. The creamy layer of rich cheese pairs well with the tender beef in the Philly Cheese Steak made with chunky cuts of 100% Australian lean steak, and the comforting flavors of the rustic Lamb Pot Pie, with its own distinct notes, is definitely a new favorite. Though each savory pie is different, you can expect the same signature soft and flaky buttery crust in all the pies at Pie Face. The savory meat pies range from P 99 to P 130, and you can get a box of five for only P 510. Or you can sample the smaller pies at P 49 each. And the good news, you don't have to drive all the way to Mall of Asia for a taste of Pie Face. You can simply visit their newest branch at Eastwood City...
Pie Face is located at the Ground Floor of Techno Plaza 2, across Eastwood Mall, Orchard Road, Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City.
