5 of the Best Dessert Pies in Singapore
We’re celebrating Pi Day on March 14, and since we can’t savour this mathematical constant (π), why not feast on delicious dessert pies instead? From popular flavours like key lime to more novel and fruity creations such as wildberry lavender and deconstructed lemon pie, here are the ones that are making our mouths water.
1/5 Banana banoffee pie
Introduced in 2018, the banana banoffee pie remains a classic dish for its rich, chocolatey flavour that pairs well with the bananas and crust. Instead of the typical digestive biscuits (used as crust), the chef prepares a shortcrust pastry, layered with two types of chocolate (Dutch chocolate ganache and dark chocolate ganache), fresh bananas and caramel toffee. Finished with generous heaps of chocolate shavings.

2/5 Key lime pie
Its vibrant green colour is enough to catch your attention; wait until you bite into its smooth and creamy curd—a perfect combination of tangy and sweet. This comes with a buttery and biscuit-like base, providing additional texture.

3/5 S’mores pie
The thin crust means more decadent layers of milk chocolate custard and dark chocolate glaze. If that’s not enough to make the dessert lover in you happy, it also comes with toasted marshmallows and homemade graham cookies. How’s that for extra indulgence?

4/5 Deconstructed lemon pie
Borne out of the culinary team’s desire to introduce classic desserts in a fun and creative way, the deconstructed lemon pie was introduced in mid-February. It still follows Merci Marcel’s traditional recipe, using organic eggs and fresh lemons. The zestiness of the fruit complements the sweetness of the homemade meringue as well as the crumbly texture of the biscuits.

5/5 Wild berry lavender pie
A feast for the eyes and palate, this crowd-pleaser has a thin and buttery crust loaded with a smooth and rich filling of white chocolate, berries and yoghurt, with just a hit of lavender to tone down the sweetness. It's recommended you eat it chilled to enjoy the delicious flavours.
