Merced Pineapple Pie



Merced Pineapple Pie

The pineapple pie of Merced Bakeshop is my favorite pie. I have already tasted this pie since I was a kid, and up until now, I still loved eating it. Nearly a decade ago, a very nice woman would go to mom's office to give some pastries from the said bakeshop, but not too long ago, she stopped going to mom's office. It was also the end of pineapple pie days for me.

Last June, sister and I went to SSS Main Building (in East Avenue) to take a picture of their wall. Mom said her picture was on the wall, and as her kids, we wanted to see her picture. We cannot find the picture in the wall, but on that day, we found something else. As we went to the canteen to eat lunch, we saw a kiosk of Merced Bakeshop, and when sister asked me if I wanted a pineapple pie, I quickly said yes, with a glow in my eyes. =)

The taste of the pie changes from time to time (depends on the pineapples used), but this one just tasted right. The tangy taste of the fruit and the yummy crust just made me happy to eat this one again. Now I know where to buy this pie when I crave for it.

@u8mypinkc00kies - They have a few stores, I think their main branch is located in Quezon Avenue.

@FoodTripFriday - Try it when you can, it's delicious (at least for me). Hehehe.

Thanks for the comments!

Jenn, the Foodie


I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
