Everything changed for Edlyne Nicolas after her Salted Earl Grey Honey Pie won best in show at the KCRW pie contest. Before that, the Filipino American bakery owner had worked as an elementary school teacher. But wanting to explore a career in food, she started baking at the (now closed) Bright Spot in Echo Park. After receiving her culinary certificate, she began teaching culinary arts at Cerritos College while baking pies on the side. But when the pandemic hit, she stopped teaching and taking orders. So when the owner of Amboy in Chinatown reached out to her, she started making pies for the burger shop instead. Since October, she's been selling pies out of the adjacent kiosk, but she hopes to open a brick-and-mortar soon. The micro bakery's menu selection changes regularly, but the Salted Early Grey Honey is still the most popular item on her ever-changing menu, which includes pies inspired by Filipino flavors, as well as her renditions of American classic desserts. Stop by often to try them all.
