San Francisco: Mission Pie

Finishing the Indian pizza nearly did us in, but it never occurred to us NOT to have dessert.  There's a separate stomach for dessert, at least that's what I tell myself...and others.

To justify the dessert, we walked from Zante to Mission Pie:

The other option was Anthony's Cookies, but CL wasn't too keen on walking another block.

Mission Pie was quite busy for 9:30pm.  Guess lots of people want pie late at night:

Mission Pie offers both sweet and savory, so we couldn't leave with trying as least one of each.  For our savory pie, we got a slice of potato gratin tart:

Potatoes with corn and shiitake good.  I think this was my favorite.

A close second was the banana cream pie:

I'm not a huge fan of banana flavored stuff, but this pie was subtle and creamy and oh-so-good.

We originally wanted the strawberry rhubarb mini pie, but they ran out, so we went with the plum frangipane instead:

My least favorite of the bunch.  The flavor was tangy and great, but the texture was a bit like applesauce and I didn't know how to deal with that on my pie.

Best part of each pie was definitely the crust.  Mission Pie really knows its stuff.
