I recently revisited Windowsills Pies with my favorite food buddy HL and naturally ordered a slice each. I think these are white chocolate truffle pies, if memory serves me right. I like indoor cafes, you get shelter from bad weather and air-conditioning for the dastardly heat. We had lunch earlier at a semi-alfresco cafe earlier and boy do I not enjoy that experience… It was a hazy day and the bad air made me lethargic.
I asked if some of the pies on display were seasonal and decorated for Halloween. Haha, the pie we ate sure looks the part! One of the staff told me no. But the pumpkin pecan pie was “seasonal” since it was pumpkin season (not in Asia, I believe). It’s quite novel how your pies are served on wooden boards. They look like chopping boards to me.
The pie had texture and was rather crunchy, which I liked. However I found it too sweet, and could certainly kick down a few notches for perfection. Or maybe I could have a pot of black tea without sweeteners to compliment the pie.
Anyway… The pies at this place are fine, but in my opinion not that worth traveling often to Jalan Besar to patronize. Some people commented the pies are expensive (I think the slice I ate was upwards of S$7). Well if it’s awesome I’m fine ponying up for it. But honestly I think the pies I had in U.S. are way better… Donuts too.
