I am happy to report that that is not the case at The Pie Hole in Downtown LA. At least that is my assessment after one slice of Maple Custard Pie.
The pie was a little pricey for one small slice, but the flavor was great and I am guessing the quality of the ingredients used was the main perpetrator of the higher price tag.
It was so sweet, smooth and comforting. The type of pie you want a hot black cup of coffee with. That is, if it wasn't 80 degrees outside like it is in LA and if coffee didn't do a total number on your body like it does on mine.
Not to mention, the pie and whole experience was even sweeter because I got to share it with my good friend Allyse who I hadn't seen in far too long.
If you are downtown, I suggest you go grab a slice, 'open up your pie hole' and let me know how there other varieties match up.
