What I'm looking for, and need advice on, is the BEST Apple Pie in LA. Looking around the boards I've read "Al Gelato," "Ford's Filling Station" (OC), and "Apple Pan."
While I haven't been to the first two, I will say that as far as "Apple Pan" apple pie goes, that was (for me at least) a major dissapointment. I went with my friends, we bought a whole pie. On the way home the smell was intoxicating, and we couldn't wait to cut into it. So we get home, grab a knife, and pierce the crust...and...nothing. It was all air with a mushy apple bottom. Talk about dissapointing. On a side not, the banana cream pie there was 10x a better experience.
But besides the aforementioned places, any others to add to the list? Or maybe you could fill me in on what makes "Al Gelato" or "Ford's" version of the apple pie so great.
