PIE PIE PIE! Sweet pies, savory pies, and even pizza pies are now freshly made and available for sale in one South Bay location. Check out Pie Pie Pie, a new fast-casual eatery that quietly opened its doors in South Redondo a few weeks ago at Torrance Blvd. and Camino Real (it occupies the space of the now-closed pizzeria, The Slice).
Don’t let its storefront location in a nondescript strip mall fool you — the savory pies, in particular, are top notch. I tasted the pumpkin pie, which is more savory than sweet (my preference) as well as the pecan pie, which is also not overly sweet. Both are excellent, but if forced to make a choice, I would more highly recommend the savory pie selections as I prefer the crust on those over the one used for the sweet pies.
Pie Pie Pie also serves Korean-style chicken wings, which are slightly sweet, not hot, and seasoned with sesame seeds. In addition, they offer a nice selection of New York-style, thin-crust pizzas (cheese, pepperoni, buffalo chicken, veggie and more), along with pasta, salads, and subs, the latter three of which I haven’t tried as of yet.
All of the yummy crusty creations at Pie Pie Pie are handmade by pastry chef Euni Kim (who trained at New York’s French Culinary Institute and worked at several New York restaurants like Battery Gardens and River Cafe). Her husband Kyoung Kang, who works in finance, runs the business side of making pies (and more). The business partners — who are also married — have lived in the neighborhood since 2011.
Call TODAY to order your holiday pies! Seasonal sweet pie selections currently include apple, pecan, and pumpkin. Order your Thanksgiving pies by 9:00pm on Monday, November 23! Note that Pie Pie Pie is always closed on Tuesdays.
Open every day except Tuesdays at 11:30am to 9:00pm – pick up, eat in, or order for delivery ($20 minimum). Free onsite parking. NOTE: I recommend taking your pies “to go” and reheating them at home for lunch or dinner since the place is small (only three tables and four bar chairs) plus the ambiance of the space is not in line with the excellence of my favorite — the savory pies!
