Chile Pies and Ice Cream

Chile Pies and Ice Cream was featured on The Cooking Channel's Unique Sweets. When it aired I didn't know what to think about this San Francisco establishment. What I do know is that I can't resist a unique dessert and I was compelled to try it.

Green Chile Apple Pie
Their signature pie is a green chile apple pie. Sounds strange but it's very very good.  It has a cheddar cheese crust and walnut struesel topping, topped with a scoop of organic vanilla ice cream. It's pretty darn genius. The filling is a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy and the crust is the best crust I think I've ever had. It is super flaky and flavorful. I wish I could replicate it. This pie puts anything from Julian to shame. Sorry San Diego.

Apple Chai Spice Pie
I visited with my family and they were kind enough to let me photograph their food before diving in. They ordered the apple chai spice pie, the brownie shake, and cup of posole with corn bread and salad.  It was all fantastic. The apple chai spice pie was a home run. The chai spice was beautiful and would be perfect for the holidays.

Yummy Posole Lunch
Brownie Shake (my hubby loved it.)

What unique window treatments!
When you visit, be prepared for a great little restaurant decked out with the Virgin Mary (even in the bathroom) and lots of friendly servers to help you make your unique treat decision. Give it a try and you'll love it too.
