Pie!!! looking for some pie in dallas.
Been in dallas for 6 years now, folks came down to visit and I thought to myself, "self, lets take the folks out for some pie". It's something we always do when we travel, try some nice pies.
wow, was I in for a disapointment. We ended up having cheesecake.
I found out in dallas, when looking for pie the first thing you have to add some qualifiers.
Not looking for:
2) pecan (pecan is fine but a variety of berry & fruit pies in addition to pecan)
3) merringue (see pecan statement)
Am looking for:
Variety of handmade berry/fruit pies.
Fon Win, you are right, we don't have much in the way of pies in dallas. oh for a House of Pies, like they have in Houston. but some of the home-cooking places do decent pie:
Norma's is my fave, especially the branch in oak cliff
Original Market Diner, also good
Mama's Daughters Diners, also very good
and Mecca ain't too bad:
Highland Park Cafeteria (formerly the Casa Linda Cafeteria)....besides the individual slices you select as you pass thru the line , they have a system where they offer slices to go or whole pies to go....and they are delicious .
Great Harvest Bakery in Snider Plaza makes insane homemade apple pies - I think every Friday. You have to call ahead and reserve one because they sell out really quickly.
