The Pie Connoisseur

I have loved the humble meat pie for as long as i can remember, when i was a wee little fella i remember buying a pie at the school tuck shop.

What has this to do with riding motorcycles. Well i'll tell you. Everything and absolutely nothing.
I grew up in a small country town(Forbes, NSW) with a great bakery that had really great pies.  Just about every other place i have ridden to or through i have tried a pie at. What i have noticed is most country towns have great pie's. Since moving to Sydney most bakerys i have seen are all run by asians. Sorry to say they do not know how to make a great pie.

A couple of years ago whilst i was working in the city i had a pie at the place i was working that was one of the best pie's i have had anywhere. That was about 4 years ago. I finally discovered where those pies came from.

I now know where Sydneys best pie is to be had. Hot Relish on Enmore Rd, Newton.
Take a look. It tastes way better than it looks and damn it looks pretty good.

This pie is one that we got and took home and put in the fridge.
Surprisingly the maker of these great pies is an old asian lady that hand makes the pastry and every pie,each meat pie has chunks of beef that melt in your mouth when you eat it. That is why they are so frickin good. She even told me the best way to reheat them.
1 minute in the microwave to heat the insides and 10 minutes in the oven. Just as good as from the shop.

Just had to put up another pic.

  1. Looks good. I am a big fan of the dessert pies. Coconut, Blueberry, Key Lime - I am getting hungry now.
