The flaky, buttery pastry of pies makes it versatile enough to be paired with a variety of toppings. From dessert pies to savoury ones you can enjoy as a meal, here’s where to find a pie for every occasion.
Assorted pie ($70)
This dessert pie specialty store is famous for its morello cherry pie, made with hand cooked sour cherry jam that’s stuffed in a buttery crust. Other popular, tongue-tingling options include the lemon curd tart with strawberry jelly, pineapple passionfruit topped with yoghurt curds, and the boozy coconut lime with bits of vodka jelly. Can’t decide? Get the assorted pie which comes with a sampling of its popular flavours.
PS. Banoffee pie ($10)
Satisfy your sweet tooth with the classic pairing of banana, cream, and toffee. Extra shavings of chocolate and a chocolate crumb base adds extra indulgence to this dish. You can also find the Normandy Pie of the Day ($9) – a new addition to its Great World menu. Depending on when you visit, the French-inspired open-faced pie can come in flavours of apple or apricot.
Peanut butter ice box pie ($7.50)
As its name suggests, these cool treats are perfect for the summer heat. Served straight out of the fridge, it comes with a thick layer of whipped peanut butter mousse – almost like rich ice cream – on a graham cracker crust. Shavings of chocolate and a dark chocolate ganache complete this indulgent treat. Just remember to go easy on the buttermilk fried chicken and leave space for desserts.
Rose apple pie ($5.90)
For a dessert that tastes as sweet as it looks, head to the floral-themed Wild Blooms. There, you’ll find flower walls and picture-perfect dishes that include the rose apple pie, a freshly baked puff filled with apple slices and slathered in apricot jam.
Lemon meringue pie ($7)
Beyond just rich chocolate-based desserts and waffles with ice cream, the café also serves up slices of lemon meringue pie that is just the right balance of sweet and tart. Those looking for a taste of cocoa can also try its equally popular Nutella chocolate pie ($6).
Chicken pie ($1.60)
You’ll find traditional bakes at this old-school bakery, with nostalgic treats from sugared donuts to kaya bread lining its shelves. Its savoury pie also has its fans, and in particular, the chicken pie that comes with a winning mixture of potatoes, carrots, peas, and tender chicken chunks – all packed into a buttery exterior.
Mix things up with this classic Greek pie, served at the breezy Santorini-inspired Zorba. To make it, flaky phyllo dough is used to encase a rich, creamy filling of spinach, feta cheese, and other aromatic herbs.
