The Pie Hole (Pasadena, CA, USA)

Pies are one of my favorite desserts (particularly key lime pie), but this joint takes it to the next level.  The Pie Hole specializes in all kinds of pie, both sweet and savory, all which look and sound super scrumptious!  They also offer coffee, a much needed staple to go along with your slice o' pie...

On this occasion I tried the Mexican Chocolate and the Yam (seasonal) Pie.  The Mexican Chocolate isn't something I would typically go for, but upon recommendation, I tried it... and it blew my mind!  It's nothing like your ordinary chocolate pie - this one is thick, rich, and chocolatey to the very end.  Let's not forget the graham crust and coffee? flavored whipped cream on top, which pairs so well with the chocolate!  The cinnamon is subtle, making this not just any ordinary chocolatey pie.  Need I say?  I'm unexpectedly in love with this pie.

The yam pie was also quite good - a little less sweet and more subtle, but still really delicious.  The mouthfeel of yam remains slightly in the pie, making the pie a little hard to eat, but otherwise, also really delicious.

The location in Pasadena is close to a bunch of shopping and Intelligentsia (which is perfectttt), and at the moment parking in the lot is free for 90 minutes.  Only downside to this place? The pies are quite, quite pricy, so be ready to empty out your pockets!
