Finally tried the oft-touted pie at Rosebud Diner, Davis Sq. late last night ,11pm. Banana Cream, and Turtle.
--neither is cloyingly sweet; in fact, perfect amount of sweet for both
--banana is both in a nice thin sliced banana layer on the bottom, and in the tall layer of banana whipped cream topping
--quality deep flavored cocoa based dense choc mousse filling over caramel and pecans
--KILLER crust- flaky buttery layers, baked through til brown- not raw.
Best crust I have ever had on a sweet pie. Really.
Not one negative for me. Perfect.Hats off and major admiration to the skilled baker who makes these wonders.
p.s. if you have long wanted to get up to Agawam Diner because you heard their pies are amazing,imo- no worries-- just take the T to Rosebud instead.
