So… I’ve heard so much about the pies at Harry’s Cafe de Wheels and have always wanted to try one. I’ve always gotten close to buying one for myself but then change my mind and opt for something else, like Wagaya (LOVE) or hotpot (LOVE).

Finally, whilst exploring the city solo, I decided to get me one of those famous pies!

pie with Peas, Mash & Gravy
The Tiger, Harry’s famous Lean Beef Tiger pie with Peas, Mash & Gravy.

I’ve got to say, the pie did not live up to the hype, in fact, I would’ve preferred a Balfours, a Villis or even a Four’n’Twenty! The meat wasn’t particularly flavourful, and I found the peas and mash to be rather bland and… stodgy. The gravy didn’t help either.

      Hahah, actually, Pancakes on the Rocks is open 24/7 but their food is pretty shabby now. Shame cause it’s always open!

      And there’s also some dingy Chinese place down Goulbourn that makes a mean Congee and Xiao Long Bao’s that’s open quite late too. Mmmm.. congeeeee~

    pity you didn’t enjoy the pie. i’ve had plenty of Tiger pies in my day and they usually hit the spot — although I’m usually drunk at the time late at night so anything would have probably been great hehe :-). can’t really beat a classic FournTwenty pie with tomato sauce though can you 🙂

      Agreed! Everything tastes great when one is drunk… although I do prefer not to eat as whatever comes in, somehow manages to find it’s way out in the next half an hour. Nothing beats a Four’n’Twenty… or a Balfours… or even a Villi’s pie! Classic!
