Houston Pie Project - Revival Market

 Revival Market has a shifted since my last visit to more of a restaurant and less of a grocery store. They still offer their house-made Worcester sauce, soy sauce, etc. The selection of pastries, fresh orange juice, and coffees not to mention the more savory breakfast options will be worth returning for.

Of course they are known for their butchery, cured meats, and charcuterie.

The chocolate cream pie by pastry chef Alyssa File is perfectly balanced. The chocolate was neither too sweet nor too bitter and much more dense than the typical chocolate cream pie, which usually has a mousse-like texture. Fresh sweetened whipped cream enrobes the entire pie, and bittersweet chocolate crumbles are scattered over the top. The pastry crust shreds rather than flakes. You need this pie. Highly recommended.
