Houston Pie Project - Kenny & Ziggy's New York Delicatessen

It will come as no surprise if you are a fan of their deli that Kenny and Ziggy's is great at making pies too. Two of the pies obey their silly naming style typical of the menu (e.g., the Pecan on someone your own size and the Big Apple). ‪#‎Houston_Pie_Project‬

Big Apple Pie

The Big Apple Pie has a lovely thin crisp dome and signs of being made by hand. Take note that a good crust stays crisp for several days after being made unlike a frozen pie crust or grocery store crust. Recommended.

The apple filling is a giant pile of crisp tender apple shreds that are very simply apple - not a lot of cinnamon or ginger - and not very sweet. Clearly has the East European style of pie making that the owner learned from his grandparents as described in the documentary "Deli Man" that featured Kenny Gruber.

The Hungarian apple strudel has a mixture of nuts added to thicker apple slices. I will be coming back to report on the other sweet pies and the chicken pot pie that was designated one of the top 100 dishes in Houston in 2013.
