The Chicken Pot Pie

chickenpie.jpgI am on a constant hunt for The Chicken Pot Pie. A hunt that has become dangerously like an obsession. I talk about it constantly. My close friends are pretty much bored with my singular food quirk. I, decidedly, am not. I was talking to a friend of mine at work, groaning over the lack of flavorful snacks in our immediate vicinity and she mentioned The Chicken Pot Pie. I was floored, to say the least. How did she know? Perhaps I was going on about it. Again

She directed me to a restaurant in downtown Los Angeles called WoodSpoon. I made a beeline after work to 9th and Spring, around the corner from the Fashion Mart. WoodSpoon smells like spices and the comfort of home.  I ordered one of the last Chicken Pot Pies. (Apparently, they're famous for them.) It arrived topped with a light flakey crust and chock full of savory, shredded chicken and fresh corn with just enough spice to take it from the blandness that it's chicken pot pie brothers and sisters often have.

Wow. What a relief to finally find the thing that I have sought throughout a dining eternity! A perfect chicken pot pie. I recommend washing it down with a Brazilian soda. So satisfying.

Thanks for writing this. I never heard about this place. And now I'm dying to try it.

Hey Cathy,
have to try it -- I have a chicken pot pie obsession, too. Have you ever tried the one at the Buffalo Club? It's a little expensive for ccp but it's pretty great.
