AUTHENTIC ENGLISH PIES

"Authentic English Pies" by Thermos Bakeshop is another recent food finds in Tagaytay. I recall it was featured by one of the leading local newspapers in its Lifestyle section. Definitely, the article stirred some curiosity in me since then. Thus, I never forget to include it in my "must grab food list". Finally, the moment to dig up this divinely delicious goodie has come. Upon reaching the store, its signage clearly stated authentic english pies with three banner flavors to choose from - Chicken Mushroom, Beef Mushroom and Apple. According to them, the best seller is the Chicken Mushroom Pie. Without further hesitation, we tried and savoured all the goodness this flavor has to offer.
Fortunately, it's another true to its claim! I find the blend of chicken and mushroom complementing. The characteristic note of the herbs used is also distinct but it did not come out too greeny. It rather fused nicely with the pie's creamy aftertaste. On the whole, it tasted similar to a good chicken a la king recipe. I think all the pies are fairly priced relative to the serving size and taste. In fact, even the small one is already too filling; good enough to be shared by two. (But of course that still depends on ones appetite and how hungry he was at the time of his purchase).
Chicken Mushroom Pie (small - P65; big - P270)
Beef Mushroom (small - P70; big - P275)
Apple (small - P49; big - P250)

Thermos, being a bakeshop did not limit itself on english pies only. There are other equally appetizing breads available. Chocolate Chip Bread - P160, Ube Ensaymada - P135 and Banana Bread - P180. But I will reserve them for next time so that there are still more to look forward to. By the way, there's also a restaurant - cafe at the back of the store with the same owner. It might also be interesting to try.
