Dish Cafe, Geelong | Beef & Cheddar Pie | Australia’s First A+ Pie!

Where: 66 Little Malop Street, Geelong CBD Cost: $6 – $9.50 Pastry: soft and thin, yet does not fall to bits.

Contributor Review | KFC ZINGER PIE!

Written by Boof Nielson Cost: $3.95 Wrapped in a paper bag, and cradled in a little tin, is the KFC Zinger Pie. I’m not usually a fan of chicken pies, as I find them too bland when compared to their beefy cousins. This, combined with the nagging feeling that this thing in my lap can … Continue reading

Ferguson Plarre Bakehouse | Waurn Ponds | Lamb & Rosemary Pie

Where: Ferguson Plarre Bakehouse, Waurn Ponds Plaza, Victoria Cost: approximately $5 something Pastry: thick! lord, it’s thick. It has a whopper of a crunch, sort of like a crispy old cracker. A tad bit floury, with no unusual flavour characteristics. Meat: this pie delivered a new level of bland. Usually lamb & rosemary pies always turn out to be … Continue reading

Routleys Bakery | Curried Scallop Pie

Cost: $6.50 Pastry: perfection. The trademark Routleys’ soft-but-somehow-firm pastry in all its glory. Meat: seafood. Lots of it. The gravy is a mild green curry, from what I could make of it. There were at least six scallops in my pie, which isn’t bad if you consider how much fish and chip shops usually charge for them. Understandably … Continue reading

Recently I was driving through Victoria’s bible-belt and found myself in the buckle: Tatura. Walking into Tatura’s Hot Bread bakery (130 Hogan street) you will notice that the shelves are creaking under the weight of all the awards they have won over the years (I assume they enter every national competition in existence). They are … Continue reading

Routleys Bakery | Grovedale | Chunky Beef and Burgundy Pie

Today for breakfast (about one in the afternoon) I ate a pie from the Routleys Bakery that has recently opened in Grovedale. I admit I have tried Routleys pies before, but never had I bought one of their pies from one of their many bakeries. I recently tried a Routleys plain pie at a roadside cafe … Continue reading

Day 3 In The Otways | Colac | Brandon Bakery

Day 3 of my trip in the Otway rain forest, and I decided to try this little bakery called Brandon Bakery in Colac on the way home. I assume this bakery is Colac’s cheap bakery. That is to say that every town has one, and is usually owned and run by Asians who haven’t yet caught onto the … Continue reading
