It is my birthday today so I decided to treat myself so I got a banana cream pie over at Lazy Sue's. The advert for it looked good.

In theory it looked good so I got a slice for 5,500 won. I think I got about 3,000 won worth of pleasure out of it. The pie crust was dry and more like uncooked filo dough than pie crust. The chocolate was non-existent and the banana layer was too thin to actually call this a banana pie. It should have been called a "whipped cream pie with banana accents." The saving grace of this was the custard. It was thick and nicely flavored with vanilla. Oh, my double espresso tasted a bit off. I think they need to get better beans.

Next time I will make my own pie
