“Yummy pies!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

What a fantastic find. Whilst wondering around Vallerta on a recent holiday we came across a small market which sold a variety of local arts & crafts, etc. One of those lovely markets that you can wonder around aimlessly. Amongst them was the Leek & Thistle Pie man.....what fantastic pies! We had the "Paddy" steak & guiness but it took a good few minutes trying to narrow the selection down. Too many good choices to decide on one!! Really very tastey and a charming young man selling them! Will definately return if ever back in Vallarta. x

always excellent and always something new to try. In the old farmers marked on Calle Pulpito, across from Coco's Kitchen (which is also excellent).

“A Great Alternative to Dining Out or Cooking In”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

When you are a long term resident of PV (or even just here for a couple of weeks) there are nights you just don't feel like cooking for yourself or going out to a restaurant. A wonderful alternative is The Leek and Thistle Pie Company. Mark Hughes is the chef/owner and is a great guy. He's a professional chef and a British expat and he offers a line of traditional English Meat Pies, plus quiches, plus a wide variety of dessert pies. We always start our time in PV by emailing Mark ahead of time and getting an order for the freezer when we arrive. Nothing could be more convenient than pulling out a couple of meat pies (all are individual serving size), reheating them, adding some vegetables and a salad and you have a fine meal. We particularly like the Beef and Guinness, the Thai Chicken Curry as well as, actually we like them all. Mark's fruit dessert pies ranging from apple to peach to mixed berry and others are all great and a nice way to end a meal. Mark has a retail store that is easy to find and a 5 minute walk from Costco. Drop by and visit and you might be lucky enough to get a taste of some new creation that Mark is trying. Check out Mark's full selection of offerings at his website at www.leekandthistle.com
Also, Mark sells his pies every Saturday at the Old Town Farmers Market in the Paradise Community Centre on Pulpito. Stop by and say hi and pick up a few pies and you won't be disappointed in the least. Mark has a great motto; 'Keep Calm and Eat More Pies'. Works for me!
