Those Australian Meat Pies are Yummy Afterall

Posted by on October 1, 2011

After trying various meat pies here I wasn’t very impressed with this Australian “national dish.” That is, until we went to the famous Harry’s Cafe de Wheels. They were excellent. Lots of well-known people have eaten the pies here, including Colonel Sanders of KFC fame. Check out the inset image for a closeup of the classic “Tiger Pie” on the left which has mashed potatoes, and the “Pie & Peas” on the right. Both feature mushy peas, which aren’t as bad as they sound. There are many other varieties available which you can see on their menu here

    Have to say though, that I only really liked the chicken pie and that was because of the cheese sauce on it. The Tiger Pie was a bit too peppery for me. Of course, that’s not saying much since I’m not the most adventurous palate, and my limit on pepper is pretty low.
