San Francisco: Chile Pies Baking Co.
T was really, REALLY looking forward to trying Bombay Ice Cream. For that matter, so was I. So when we pulled up to the address only to find the place completely cleared out, we were devastated. Cleared out as in emptied. No furniture. No signs. Nothing. Not even an ice cream cup.
Dejected, we wandered around for a bit before T rallied and drove us to Chile Pies Baking Co.:
Very woodsy and hipster-y. Super cute.
Very interesting pie flavors too. We went with the green chile apple pie with cheddar crust:
The chile was what made the pie. I wish the cheddar was a bit more noticeable though.
We also selected a Mexican chocolate pie, but we wanted it in a shake:
That's right, a pie shake. You pick a pie and an ice cream (we went with vanilla) and watch them blend away. Guh. So amazing.
To counterbalance all the sweetness, we got the red chili carne asada pot pie:
Flaky crust and yummy filling:
The best thing there was without a doubt the pie shake. If you don't get anything else, get the shake. Yes, it's $6, but it's worth it.
