Mom’s Pie 2

25 Apr

Cranberries cheesecake
Not well-balanced: the cheesecake was too salted which made the cranberries “jam” even sweeter. So the overall was too sweet.

Peach pie
the dough wasn’t enough cook (i don’t know why this one in pertuclar, but the dough was horrible because of that. Then it’ syrup peach, so the flavor isn’t as good as with real ones.

Oatmeal pie
I was quite surptised by it, it’s my favorite of them. A nice flavor and the dough was cooked enough.

Coconut pie
This one is ok, except that i don’t really enjoy the coconut inside which is translucid…

Mom’s Pie – NCCU delivery

24 Nov

Since today i finished my exam and wasn’t really happy about the Chinese one, i decided that i needed something sweet. And, lucky me, tiday is Thanksgiving day. So the “famous” pie seller around the university that usually only comes on Tuesday and Thursday from 3pm to 8pm stayed longer today. I was finally able to taste these pies that everyone talk about in the area and that taipei food blogs also know. I was then expecting much about these. I was quite disappointed.

I chose 3 (i’ve been wanting to try them for 3 months now, so of course, i had to try several!): Pinapple coconut cheesecake, coffee cheesecake and strawberry banana pie. I must say that was the first time that i remember eating a cheesecake (i ate once in NYC but i can’t remember the taste, so..). I think that i just don’t like the cake in itself, because both cheesecake weren’t that good. I mean, it’s easy, you can’t really taste the fruit or coffee flavors and i don’t really enjoy this texture that’s creamy but heavy and too much cheese flavor. That’s the cake in itself that i don’t like, so i can’t really judge it, since that’s also my first time eating one.

However the strawberry banana pie was ok. Not exceptional though. I will not travel around the city to get one, and i don’t think i’ll buy another neither. I ate 3 and i was still hungry as if i hadn’t eaten anything! It’s still too “American like” dessert, which are usually not my cup of tea, except a few sweets.
