Don - Your Personal Pie Club

Chicken Pie

This place (25 China Street #01-01, 6327-4344) had a bit of a wierd name, and also had a bit of a confusing offering. At first glance, it looked like they offered Australian meat pies. But when I asked for their allegedly popular Chicken Pie, they pointed at this huge thing that could have fit into one of those Marie Callender's return deposit pie tins. I thus asked for a single serving instead, after which they gave me one slice in a cardboard box.

Perhaps more surprisingly, this thing turned out to be rather spicy as a result of being heavily loaded with white pepper, which suggested that this was more of a local pie than anything (they also offered Claypot Crab Bee Hoon at this place). Well, I love white pepper, and the crust was nice and flaky too, despite not using any lard. So I really did end up enjoying this quite a bit in the end, even if it wasn't exactly the Australian variety of pie that I thought they would be serving.

The owner used to be a chef in Hewlett-Packard cafeteria. I remembered when I was in HP as an intern, some ladies were ordering up to 20 pies when it was pie day. The pies left in a taxi.
