Go on, take a bite out of one of Sydney's best pies!
For a delicious, flaky, gourmet pie, feast your eyes on this list of Sydney's best pies.
We couldn’t not mention Bourke Street Bakery. We know you know this bakery is good, and a lot of press gets given to the sausage rolls here, but the pies – like the beef brisket, red wine and mushroom – are just as worthy of the accolades. Just mouth-watering!
2. Dinky Di Pies || 525 Old South Head Rd, Rose Bay. Ph: (02) 9388 2427
Don't be fooled by the Aussie name, the man behind this Rose Bay (and now Sydney-wide) bakery is entirely French as is his training. Plain steak, beef and burgundy and chicken and leek with a desirable flaky texture all get the thumbs up.
This Woolloomooloo van has been serving up pie to locals, celebrities and late-night revellers since 1938 and is even registered on the National Trust. For a classic taste of Sydney you can’t go past Harry’s – Grab the signature Tiger: a beef pie topped with mash, gravy and mushy peas.
Truth be told, there’s not a huge pie offering Newtown’s most famous bakery. But Christopher The’s lamb shank, red wine and vegetable pie is definitely worth writing about, with large tender chunks of meat in lighter-than-air pastry.
These days it seems everywhere we turn there’s a new Pie Face store opening, so it’s a good thing we like what they have to offer. They’re often open til late for us to grab a chunky steak injected with cheese an and mini sweet pies (cherry or apple), but they are good pretty much any time of day.
