Better than . . .pie?
Just had my first slice of Pie 'n Burger fresh peach pie this year, and it tasted as great as always. My favorite 2 1/2 pies are the following:
1) Fresh peach pie from pie 'n burger
2) Harvest pie from Coco's (the only good thing about Coco's)
2 1/2) Donut man's fresh strawberry and peach donuts (ijust think it's fresh pie filling with a jelly donut crust)
Are there any pies out there better in LA?
I hate to say this, but I LIKE the pies at Costco. Especially the Dutch apple
I also like:
4 N 20's Strawberry Pie
Jongworld's Pies (lots of them)
I don't think Donut man's fresh peach or strawberry donuts are pie filling-the strawberry one had rather big hunks if not whole berries. But I see the comparison.
Not pie, but one of the best slices of cheesecake I had (hey, it has a CRUST, right?) was at Valley Inn.
I regretfully have yet to try Pie n Burger still, but the banana cream pie at Apple Pan is pretty amazing.
I have yet to try Pie N Burger, but my favorites are...
Apple from House of Pies (kind of a savory crust-I can see it being the same crust as the chicken pot pie.)
Chocolate Silk, Marionberry and Boysenberry from Pollys Pies
Peach pie and Kahlua cheesecake from Marie Callenders
Pear tart tatin from Susina (does that count?)
Vegan Pecan pie from Mani's Bakery
and, I hate to say it, but those bake-yourself from the grocery store around holiday season, esp the apple crumble, never disapoint.
OK, Phurstluv. I get that you don't like Pie n Burger. Help me out here with a better pie then.
Convince me that there's a better pie out there. Be specific.
You seem to really like pie! Thanks for the break down of what to try at those places.
You might like the apple or pecan at Pie N Burger.
At Jongewaard's Bake 'n Broil the crust is trully perfect and the Lush pies (Lemon Lush --OMG!) are really good.The cherry or chocolate / walnut are also good. The whole long list of pies are good but the apple is not their best -- get that at P&B.. The German Chocolate and Red Velvet cakes or upcakes are great as well. A slice of pie comes with the burger special which ialso ncludes a soft drink for about $8. That is probably the best meal deal in the L.A. area.
