A slice of summerScroll Down
Longing for a sweet summer? Grab a dessert pie from these Ayala Malls restaurants.
Summer is officially here, and that means one thing: our afternoons are getting longer, which means one more thing — there’s more time for merienda.
Pies are often overlooked sweets, but if you think about it, it makes for a perfect summer snack. It’s not too sweet, and serving them chilled is just enough to cool you down this summer. Plus, their fruity varieties are the perfect antidote to these bland days.
But where does one get one of these decadent treats? Here, we’ve compiled a list of pies worth a try at Ayala Malls.
Mama Lou’s apple pie
Nothing screams pie more than a classic apple pie, and Mama Lou’s a la mode version has it on blast.
A peek at its cross section reveals generous chunks of delicious granny smith apples, topped with a light crumble and finished with a scoop of vanilla ice cream that gently drips into the hot caramel within. Yum.
Mamou’s key lime pie
Mamou is likely one of the last places you’d think of getting a pie — it is known for its steak after all. Mamou’s key lime pie is the perfect bookend to a decadent dinner, with just the right tanginess to cleanse your palette. Its creamy custard also makes for a great accompaniment to your afternoon tea or coffee.
Banapple banoffee pie
Just like its name, Banapple’s banoffee pie is a combination of many great things. Apart from the ripe bananas cradled by a rich bed of toffee, the pie is a confluence of multiple textures and weights, with the graham crust, cream top and chocolate toppings all converging into a momentously flavorful mouthful.
Mary Grace apple pie with walnut crumble
If there’s one place you can count on to have a good pie to snack on, it’s Mary Grace. Their take on the classic apple pie is augmented with a walnut crumble that adds an extra crunch and layer of flavor that just sends it over the edge.
Conti’s turtle pie
Conti’s is widely known for its towering Mango Bravo cake, but it has more than a few gems hidden within its menu. If you’re looking for a pie to feed your sweet tooth, Conti’s version is made with a chocolate crust, filled with a caramel and chocolate cream, and topped with walnuts and a tall wall of whipped cream.
