Review: Mēs Pies & Wine
Who doesn’t like a delicious pie? Who can resist it being paired with the perfect wine? Not us… So – when we heard about Mēs Pies we just had to try this new addition to Harrow Road.
Billed as a neighbourhood pie and wine shop serving hand-crafted artisanal pies and natural wine, we were excited as we stepped off the Harrow Road close to Kensal Green tube and into what resembled a gleaming pie factory. Owners, chefs and sommeliers Fernando, Martin and Yavor greeted us, sat us down, and our eyes scanned up to the chalkboard menu. Offering a range of generous pies using seasonal fillings and encased in short crust pastry we opted for the beef shin and ox cheek ale pie and a classic chicken and mushroom. With a history of working in some of Notting Hill’s best-loved diners and eateries such as The Cow and Hereford Road, the Mēs Pies guys speak with real passion about the pies. They talked us through the process and enthused about the 6 am starts – yes – this is a real labour of love. And wine specialist Yavor extolled the virtues and flavours of the selection of natural wines – organic, natural fermentation, nothing added, minimal intervention and allegedly hangover proof…
And the pies were great. The pastry was flaky and gorgeous. The beef was tender, tasty and full of flavour. The chicken was melt-in-the-mouth good, with a perfectly creamy sauce. Served with gravy and smooth buttery mash and a delicious glass of red, it felt like the perfect mix of a classic dish served with style. With venison, rabbit, pork, duck, leek and squash pies also on the menu, along with some tasty looking handmade sausage rolls, the variety is there to keep us coming back.
Mēs Pies felt like the sort of neighbourhood joint we need. Great food, designed with passion, and made with love. The Mēs Pies team chose our area from a whole range of options they were exploring, feeling the energy of Kensal matched theirs. We are delighted they did and can’t wait to pick up a pie again soon.
