A few Sundays ago, we headed to The Grove for lunch in Pi Breakfast and Pies. It’s been one of our favorite in the Maginhawa area but we hardly ever go there. We’ve been cajoling Chef Ed Bugia to open closer to us for years and he finally found a space.
The Grove branch is bigger feels brighter and even includes some herb on the walls.
Irene went with her favorite, Caramelized Spam (P255). Spam cubes served with garlic fried rice, kimchi but Irene told them to not serve the five minute egg. Suffice to say, she skipped talking to us after her plate arrived. I was tempted to order this but decided to go for something new.
Lauren got the Bacon Mac N Cheese (P215). Mozzarella and cheddar cheese sauce with bacon bits made Lauren a happy eater.
I had the Breakfast Gumbo (P325), a skillet filled with home made sausage, shrimps, cajun style tomato stew with chicken, peppers, okra, spice and a poached egg on top. There’s a whole lot of pleasing and punchy flavors to complete the various proteins. Breaking the egg and mixing it into the stew and rice gives it a richer and creamier coating.
Orange and Lime Cream Pie (P145). I’m always attracted to citrus desserts and this new pie has two of them. The pie was the perfect palate cleaner after my gumbo main, washed away all the spices and flavors. I’d readily go back for this or my old fave the banana cream pie.
Lauren got the Smores Pie (P145). Homemade marshmallow, chocolate fudge and graham crust. I never got a taste of this one but I had no doubts it was good because a request for a take home slice followed.
Looking for a new all day breakfast place in the Pasig area, or maybe a dessert place to finish off a meal then be sure to head on over to Pi Breakfast and Pies.
