I don’t usually post about desserts, but this one takes the cake (sorry). Think pie with a brownie filling + hints of cinnamon. Someone get me the recipe!
The Pie Hole

Los Angeles, CA 90013
At 4.50 a slice, this isn’t going to win any awards in the value department.

Arcadia, CA 91006
$3.50 a slice. Two will put down most hungry eaters.
Tucked in the blind spot of a tiny Irvine shopping center, it can be easy to miss Curry House with Trader Joes and Golden Spoon at the center of attention.

Los Angeles, CA 90024
A little over $5 for the quintessential fast food meal
