Mmmm… pie. Y’all love pie, right? Key lime pie, chocolate bourbon hazelnut pie, mud pie, classic apple pie… If you love pies like I do, then Pacific Pie Company is THE place for you. But did you know that Pacific Pie Company serves up so much more than pie? They have a full menu AND a full bar.
A full bar! I’m just going to let that sink in with you for a second.
Okay. Back to the food. I was delighted to be invited to a recent blogger event to try their newest menu items, and I’m excited to share some of them with you today.
We were greeted with a refreshing gin and tonic, which was the perfect way to cool off after stepping inside from the blistering summer heat.
Pacific Pie Company Co-Owner Sarah Curtis-Fawley welcomed our crew and introduced the new menu items. Sarah is one of the kindest, most gracious restaurant owners I have met, and it’s very clear how much she loves running Pacific Pie Company with her husband, Chris.
The Spinach Strawberry Rhubarb Salad was the perfect blend of summer on a plate. I’ve always loved the combo of strawberries and feta cheese, and the added crunch of spinach and almonds was a nice mix of textures and flavors in the dish.
The Chicken Satay was fantastic: yogurt marinated chicken breast on ginger soy slaw with a sweet and slightly spicy peanut sauce. The ginger soy slaw was terrific. It could have stood on its own, which I love, but it was a nice complement to the chicken.
One of my favorite new menu items at Pacific Pie Company is the Baked Polenta with Creamy Organic Mushroom Sauce. The polenta is cooked to just the right consistency — slightly crispy on the outside and soft but not mushy on the inside — and the mushroom sauce is divine. A fabulous combination of flavors!
One of my favorite pies at Pacific Pie Company is their Chocolate Bourbon Hazelnut Pie, and the geniuses at Pacific Pie Company have turned it into a shake. Pie shakes, people! BRILLIANT and perfect for summer!
They also make a delightful Key Lime Pie Shake that is cool and tangy.
And of course, there are the PIES…
We were treated to an assortment of mini pies, which are absolutely beyond adorable.
Seriously. I can’t stand the cuteness. Forget memes with cute kittens, just fill my social media feed with adorable food like these sweet mini pies and I’d be super happy.
I really wish you all could have been at this event with me, but that just means you need to get yo self to Pacific Pie Company and try their new menu items in person.
