Buy my pie


After reading about this pie shop near my place, I decided to eat one during tea break on Monday. That was just the day before my ulcers acted up. In case you're wondering maybe it was too heaty for me and my sore mouth, I don't think so because CH and I shared a small one that afternoon.

We ordered the black pepper chicken pie and it was baked on the spot. It arrived at our table piping hot and delicious! The business concept is very simple. There are only 4 flavours to choose from: chicken, black pepper chicken, minced beef and black pepper beef; available in individual ($3.90 each) or family size.

I don't know how successful this business is but I could see several delivery guys waiting around for the next delivery order. Apparently more people call up to order than turn up at the little shop. Sometimes you don't need a very complicated product to make loads of money.

I'll be happy to spend my golden years baking and selling pies from a little hole-in-the-wall shop some day. You must come buy my pie ok?

Unfortunately they don't sell vegetarian versions but you can easily make them you know. YK used to make shepard's pie when he was younger. If you can make brownies, you can make pie too.

You have me surfing for recipes for a Mushroom pie for this Sunday. If I find a good one, I would give it a try and put up a post :-)

By the way, if you ever decide to sell pies as a business, make sure you have one vegetarian one? How about calling is WaterLearner's Veggie Pie? (Thick skin liao ... oh well, it's a Friday you know).

Blur Ting said...

Sure! I'll remember to name it after you. You'll be the first to taste it!
