Worlds worst pie

By Maelinar 13 February 2008 62

I’ll start this thread with a disclaimer – the worlds worst pie is not physically located in the ACT. It is located in the natural stopping place for those travelling from the ACT – Canberra to the ACT – Jervis Bay, at Kangaroo Valley.

Touting no less than 3 separate signs professing that the worlds best pie is located at the humble side of the road store as you are driving into Kangaroo Valley, I was naturally intrigued.

 For those familiar with my rating system, this is so far off the scale (detailed later), that I’ll not bother going into the negatives, it just gets a flat 0/0/0.

First of all, price – silver coin change from $6, not even ordering sauce.

Secondly, crust – this was reasonable and I will just put this down as false advertising.

Thirdly, filling – I ordered a steak and kidney pie. I got a potato and gravy pie with 2 bits of steak and 1 bit of kidney. Nuff said.

Fourthly, taste – with the expectation of a steak and kidney pie tasting like a steak and kidney pie, my potato pie in my hand did not taste anything like my expectation (not surprising on account of there being scant evidence of the necessary ingredients)

Overall – Mrs Macs is a better option at the servo down the road for 1/3 the price. Worlds Worst Pie – the worst pie I have ever had the displeasure of eating.

What’s Your opinion?

Thumbs down to Braidwood – I’ve given up on that place.

I reckon state v state WA probably has the best average pie in the country followed by Tassie or Vic. Closer to home the place in Frederickton (just north of Kempsey) is pretty good but getting a bit carried away with its popularity… I think Holbrooks gone down hill a bit as well (its snot block (vanilla slice) is still good though).

Best pie ever, my brother in laws beef and burgundy; havent had one in nearly five years and I still think about it. *wipes tear from his eye*

Surprised that no one has nominated The Daily Pie at Collector. This is a unique family run enterprise and everything is super-fresh. Get there before 2.00pm for the most popular ones. Great taste and value.

Aha – any more nominations for there? Whenever we drive past I think “oooo wonder what thats like? There no ‘Worlds Best ….’ sign, so it might actually be be quite good. oh well too late now, past the turning. Must pop in next time…”.

Just to add to the Worlds Worst pies thread (and stay on-topic), I have to add my thumbs down to the Kangaroo Valley place. Like Maelinar and others, we too stopped there (this time being taken in by the ‘Worlds Best …’ con-trick, oh we never learn :-)) and were greatly disappointed. The prices promise decently made pies with quality filling – in reality I think the prices demonstrate the art of good marketing to the gullable, in making large profits….
