The Pie Tin

When I think about an All-Australian favourite food, meat pie comes to mind! I love meat pies but the quality of both pastry and filling are very important. Kind of like good spaghetti Bolognese that has pasta cooked al denté and a tomato sauce that just blows your mind away. The savoury and sweet pies at Pie Tin blew my mind and body away!

The selection of sweet pies

I have heard a lot of good things about this place. An invite from Chocolatesuze gave me that needed push to visit this place. Pie Tin is located in a backstreet called Brown Street near the busy King Street in Newtown. I was digging the very laid back and rustic vibe in this place.

Pork and fennel sausage roll

Tender steak, smokey bacon and cheddar cheese pie

I decided to order a savoury pie and the sound of tender steak, smokey bacon and cheddar cheese pie ($5.80 a slice) tickled my fancy. It tastes as good as it sounds. It had perfect flaky pastry on top with a perfect base. The chunks of steak are very tender indeed. The sauce, bacon and cheese are an awesome combo with the steak. For $10, you can add two sides with your pie. I chose the Boston beans and coleslaw. The Boston baked beans were so good and the coleslaw is not sour but rich in mayo creaminess.

Chocolatesuze decided to order sweet pies and share them with everyone.

Maltesers Pie ($6.50 a slice)

Lemon meringue pie ($6.50 a slice)

Milk chocolate ganache and caramel pie

“They were all amazing!” says my tastebuds. But, it was the very sweet milk chocolate ganache and caramel pie ($6.50 a slice) that stood out for me. This is something for people with really sweet tooth (like myself). Besides from being the sweetest out of all three pies, it had a fudgy and smooth texture with rich milk chocolaty taste. The caramel literally takes it to another level of sweetness and lusciousness.

I wanted to enjoy Pie Tin’s amazing pies with Mrs Ramen Raff. So, I decided to order takeaway, which included the southern slow cooked pork pie and Oreo pie. 
Southern slow cooked pork pie with apple and barbecue sauce

The slow cooked pork pie with apple and barbecue sauce ($5.80 a slice) is one awesome pie! The slow roasted pulled pork filling is so tender. It tasted like roast suckling pig and even more so, like the Philippine version of roast suckling pig. It is definitely very smokey and very flavoursome. The slightly sweet apple and barbecue sauce completes the awesomeness of the filling.

Oreo pie (I forgot to take a photo of the slice)

Last but not the least, the oreo pie ($6.50 a slice). This is one pie I couldn’t get off my head! Its awesome taste just sticks with you and makes you crave for more. It is topped with oreo cookies. This is the best cookies and cream dessert that I’ve ever had.

I see myself visiting Pie Tin very soon to try all their other savoury pies. They surely have one of the best meat pies and dessert pies I’ve had. My lunch at Pie Tin was very yummy for my tummy. How’s yours?
