I hardly ever go to North Van or Lonsdale Quay so I couldn’t quite remember what they had in the food court there. I actually wanted to go to The Coffee Bun Bakery but they are closed on Sundays so I wandered around and El Dorado Pie & Treats caught my eye. It was either that or crepes. You know I have a sweet tooth!
I originally wanted a slice of pie but that plan was foiled too because the only pie by the slice they had available was strawberry rhubarb and I wasn’t feeling it.
Plan B or should I say C, was to get the Apple Empanada. It looked like portable apple pie and it was also cheaper than a slice of pie too.
This also didn’t work out for me as I found the dough to be really tasteless? I had it warmed up and the pastry part was soft and buttery but also floury and it just didn’t taste right. Like it tasted like there was butter in it but not in a good way. The sugar sprinkled on the outside didn’t help either. Furthermore, the filling was lacking in sweetness and did not taste like the apple pie that I had envisioned.
Not sure if this is what empanadas are suppose to be like since I don’t think I’ve had many but maybe stick with the pies here. I should’ve went with the crepes!
