A team of friends have opened The Crusty Nest, a new cafe in Subang that's dedicated to pies - its name reflects the significance of family & food, inspired by a Chinese children's story about a mother bird who perseveringly fed her hatchlings in their nest; eventually, after she had aged & weakened, her young ones faithfully returned to the nest to feed her in return.

The Crusty Nest's founders were stirred to start a pie shop after spending time in Australia & visiting similar outlets there - they've since completed training in the art & science of pastries under the tutelage of French baking maestros based in KL. 

Expect both contemporary & classic creations; our favourite is probably the Piezza (RM15 nett), meant to be a cross between pie & pizza, with chicken, cheese & sour cream. Jackie The Meat Pie (RM12) comes a close second, with a flavoursome filling of minced beef & tomato sauce topped with mashed potatoes. Thomas' Beef Pie (RM13) is a steak pie; the meat's tender but could be more moist. Still, it's all served warm & tastes fresh - come early in the evening; some pies may run out later at night.

It's not all about savoury pies though - straight-from-the-oven chocolate tarts (RM10), 'wedding cheesecakes' (RM12; named for their their white colour) & apple crumbles (RM10) are available too. Note however that The Crusty Nest isn't open for lunch.
