So here it is, my first review of a restaurant in Richmond. I have found the cutest and most unique little place to go and eat lately. I heard about this place from a few friends at work and decided that I had to try it out! The restaurant is called the Proper Pie Company and it is located in downtown Richmond on East Broad Street.
The first thing you will notice when you walk up is the line, usually out the door, because they are so popular! This always reassures me that I was making a good choice in trying a new place. Also the other thing you will notice is the crazy amount of options on their menu (so hard to choose!). They have savory and sweet pies available so you can go and get whatever you are in the mood for, which for me usually means getting both.
The other great thing that I like is that they have vegan and vegetarian friendly options, which is always really nice to offer, and I know lots of my friends would appreciate that. At this point, I have been there several times and have tried a few different types of savory and sweet pies.
I really enjoy the Chicken & Kumara (and yes, I did have to go back to their awesome Facebook page to find out how to spell that). The great thing about this page is that they post all of their different menu items each day, and when they run out, they are out, so you better get there quick!
I am also a sucker for a good piece of sweet pie, and my favorite is pecan. They have the best pecan pie I have ever had. I can’t even get myself to order a different flavor because I feel like I’m cheating on my pie! They do have tons of other flavors with a variety of fruit and chocolate pies.
Last but not least is their staff. Super friendly every time I am there. I usually sit at the counter and just watch all of the action. They are constantly baking and making more pies all day long. I find it just to be a really unique place. They use cool ingredients from all over the world and it gives you a chance to try a lot of new things. I would definitely recommend trying this place out. I know I will be back again!
