Pies and Coffee

C says:

This could well be our new favourite place to grab a fuss-free light meal. They currently have 3 outlets in Singapore (Turf City, Rochester Mall and somewhere in the East), but because of the ample free parking, so far we’ve only been to the Turf City one.
All the pies that we’ve tried here thus far – Duck Confit, Wagyu Beef Cheek, Chicken Cheddar and Seafood – have been really good. The crust is tender but not excessively flakey or crumbly, and the fillings are all different and all very tasty. I’m impressed that even though they’re just meant to be pie fillings, all the meats in the fillings are cooked really well – very tender and not overcooked or dried out.

Another good thing about them is that with every order of a savoury pie, you get a simple green salad and a big scoop of mashed potatoes and gravy. The salad is simply dressed with vinaigrette and pretty good, and I really like the mashed potatoes, which are hearty, rustic and have some texture from the added potato skins. We ordered a kid’s size Chicken Cheddar to go, which cost all of $5.45, and it still came with hefty portions of the salad and the mashed potato.
Not all of the pies on the menu are available on any given day, but it probably doesn’t matter because it seems like they’re all good.

Great pies. And while it seems a bit pricey, once you factor in the complimentary salad and mash, it's a pretty good deal. Plus, the coffee is great. Win!
