In search for the best Apple Pie

There are days when I yearn for fruit. And my favorite fruit is the apple pie. So far the best apple pie for me is from Sugarhouse. The apple chunks are thick and crunchy unlike most apple pies that have soft mushy apples. I also like their use of grated cheese as topping for their apple pie. Cuts down on the carbs from the extra crust, right? The bottom crust is so good too it tastes like cookies. This is the only pie crust I eat. I don’t know how they keep it crisp.

My takeout apple pie had so little cheese. Whipped cream on the side.

Bannaple‘s apple caramel crumble pie has a very pleasant burnt caramel taste. The filling is not too sweet. The apples are not as firm I as I would like but it’s not bad at all. I’m not too fond of the topping which tastes like fine breadcrumbs with cinnamon. It doesn’t do anything to the pie. I didn’t eat the bottom crust which was soft, thick and all carbs.

These two pies look similar don’t they? Banapple’s pie is really darker because of the caramel. The streusel topping and crust of Sugarhouse is far superior. That’s why Sugarhouse still has the best apple pie.

I’ve tasted other apple pies like the ones from S&R -all sauce not much apples but good crust, Mary Grace -mushy apples and crust, Carla & Elaine’s -good filling, terrible mushy crust.

Do you have any suggestions? What’s your favorite apple pie in Manila?
