The Aussie Pie Stop

Has anyone tried the pies from this place? I found the pie stop in the basement of Melbourne Central, in the food court next to the exits of the train station on the Swanston street side.

The pie stop boasts about 30 different types of pies. Gourmet ones include kangaroo, crocodile, venison, emu and camel. I have yet to build up the courage to try these. If anyone out there has tried these, let me know what they taste like.

Competition is stiff in this food court. But I think the pie stop has found its niche market as well as a very good deal. Their super saver meal consists of a regular pie plus chips and a can of drink for $4.95. Now, I reckon that should be sufficient for an average fellow. I’ve tried it, savouring the chicken, mushroom and camembert pie. It was piping hot, crusty and delicious, but I could have been hungry. The sauce was not too watery and I could see and taste the chicken. The chips were a bit overdone, but what more should I expect for a meal less than a fiver?

I plan to try every pie on the menu. Its going to take some time. In the mean time, check them out at the Aussie Pie Stop.
