The Perfect Pie

Posted by Krista on January 20, 2013

I’m supposed to stop eating things like this but the novelty wins and the 5:2 diet to make up for my life of excess seems like a better and better idea. (Who wants to eat on Mondays and Tuesdays, anyhow?) The food at the Pleasant House Bakery in Bridgeport, Chicago along with their lovely staff, make for an excellent excuse to get yourself out of your Northside “I don’t go south of Madison” comfort zone. Mushroom and kale!! Who knew a mushroom and kale pie could be so perfectly perfect? Best pie I’ve ever had. Really and truly. You should go get one. Or four. (If you really don’t want to go south of Madison, Pleasant House Bakery pies are stocked at a number of places around Chicago.) Thank you to Roam & Home and Mr Roam & Home for the adventure. (And this was only our first stop!) Hmmm…if I’m going to stick around Chicago, maybe I should buy a car. It makes adventures easier.

    That pie was insanely good! Wins best pie EVER [well to date in my life time of consuming pies].

      Well, being Australian and all does make you an expert!!! Had the chicken balti for breakfast this morning. Saving mushroom and kale for the freezing cold hibernation of tomorrow!

    I love their pies especially the steak and mushroom one. Definately much nicer when you get them hot and fresh at the bakery
