Pie Face Media Tasting at Bugis Village

Australia’s Pie Face has finally arrived in Singapore! It is the largest pie chain from Australia with about 75 stores across the country. Established in 2003, this Sydney-based bakery café is best known for baking its warm and delicious pies from scratch. Encased within the flaky crust are different types of freshly prepared fillings created by the chain’s chief pie baker – Mr Francois Galland.

Other than the usual favorites such as Chunky Steak Pie and Chicken & Mushroom Pie, you will be amongst the first to enjoy a sneak preview of its first-ever flavors launched exclusively at the Singapore store – Chicken & Peppercorn pie and Creamy Vegetables pie. Other sweet offerings include their signature mini lemon pie and mini butterscotch pie are the must-trys too.


Was invited to a media tasting: Pie Face Media Tasting at Bugis Village yesterday evening! The restaurant have good ambiance with warm lighting. A good hangout place to have your coffee and pastries with loved ones.

Before my review on the pastries, I shall first share about the Hot cappuccino I ordered. It tasted quite good. It was milky, smooth and tasted neither too bitter or acidic for me.

Then, the pies arrived! As you can see, different cute emoticons are printed on each pie; the emoticon actually represented different flavours. You may wish to know that these savoury pies come in both regular and mini sizes. 

The flavours Pie Face offer for regular sizes are: Chunky Steak, Chicken + Mushroom, Chicken + Peppercorn, Thai Green Curry Chicken and Tandoori Vegetable. The mentioned flavours are also available in mini pies but it has 3 additional flavours: Steak + Peppercorn, Chili Chicken + Corn and creamy vegetable. 

I thought the texture of the pasties was nicely done. The crust was crispy and quite flaky. The amount of filling inserted was rather generous as well. My personal favourite flavours are: Thai Green Curry Chicken and Chicken + Mushroom. I thought that some pies tasted slightly flavourful for me. Nevertheless, each has its own classic taste that cater to different individual. 

For additional $2, you can add the gravy mashed and peas to your pie! And yup, I felt that the idea was creative and indeed it tasted pretty awesome! 

Here comes the Chicken + Cheese Sausage, Chicken sausage roll, Almond and Cheese Stick! My personal favourites are: Cheese Stick and Chicken + Cheese Sausage! 

The Chicken + Cheese Sausage goes well with the good texture crust. However, the texture of the sausage could have been slightly better. The Cheese Stick tasted pretty good! It was crispy, flaky and the cheese was not too strong for my taste bud. One of the best I have indulge. 

Next, the sweet desserts! Mini Pecan Pie, Butterscotch pie, Lemon Pie, Chocolate Pie, Raspberry pie, Apple crumble pie, Green Tea w Red Bean Pie, Coffee Mousse Pie, Chocolate Mousse cake, Banana Bread and Carrot Cake!

My personal favourites are: Raspberry pie, Coffee Mousse Pie, Chocolate Mousse cake and Banana Bread! The others tasted reasonably tasty too. As it was freshly made, it certainly depends on your individual flavour preferences to decide your favourite ones.

Great to see familiar faces (bloggers) there! Nice to mingle and make new friends too. Grateful for this opportunity to be invited for this media tasting. Thanks Jaslyn Low & Pie Face Singapore for the host and invitation! (;
