La Palma Chicken Pie Shop

La Palma Chicken Pie Shop, Anaheim, CA.

That plate of food might look a little unappetizing, but I assure you, it was the best chicken pot pie I've ever eaten in my life. I licked my plate clean. For $6.20, I got a salad, a cup of delicious chicken noodle soup, that pot pie with mashed potatoes, and a slice of boysenberry pie. Not only did I leave stuffed and satisfied, delighted by a waitress who called me "dear" and other charming colloquialisms, but I got a couple beautiful snapshops of some gorgeous Googie signage. There was a giant iron piece of the chicken on the street sign mounted on a wall inside, but it seemed a little rude of me to just start snapping photos. Everyone was cordial, despite my wild appearance (I hardly fit in with the mostly-senior crowd), and I must reiterate the deliciousness of the food.

Stop by this place for a great deal, great food, warm service, and a full belly.

It's posts like these that make me want to become a food blogger too!

Food blogging IS fun! (but I always just eat at chain restaurants like Mimi's Cafe, I wouldn't make much of a food blogger)

OMG - I can't believe that place is still there. Is it the one at LaPalma and Euclid??? We used to live just down the street and our mom would stop and get the chicken pot pies and bring home for dinner sometimes.That was back about 1956. Thanks for the photo and the memories.
