Canberra’s Best Meat Pie?

By Kramer - 6 September 2007 83

Pies. It’s a subject that can potentially divide the nation. Soft pastry or crispy? Chunky meat or smooth consistency? Plain beef or tandoori eggplant? So where’s Canberra’s best pie?

Although I haven’t been out there in a while, I think the pies from Charnwood Bakery would definitely be amongst the best. They have a great crispy lid, tasty beef filling with just enough gravy, and a firm but not too solid base.

Send in your recommendations, and I’ll organise a team of pie tasters (maybe once Mat Dunning is back in the country) to rate them and award Canberra’s best pie.

What’s Your opinion?

What about Croissant D’Or in the interchange? Fantastic. Knead at the Belco Markets (which along with the organic butcher comprise the only redeeming features of the joint) makes some seriously good kit. And in winter there’s Silo, of course.

I think you’re looking for the worst pie thread, those three along with Elaine’s are a solid top 4 of overpriced underwhelmingness.

I think the pies from Crust Bakery at Fyshwick Markets are quite good too. I’ve found the ones from Elaine’s at Fyshwick to be hit and miss. More miss than hit.
