Olinda!?!? Great pies!??! Sounds like goobeddygod hogwash! A sceptic might proclaim. They might even add that’s pie in the sky. Funnily, they would have hit the nail right on the head. Not just a local crowd, in fact the country style weatherboard establishment, filled with country nostalgia bric-a-brac seems to be filled with city slickers looking for a slice of the award winning.
I’m no pie connoisseur but I can usually spot a Four-N-Twenty when I’m sober. And these pastry puppies are no conveyor belt meat package. The house floater is the house signature of cow pie with a puff of spud mash treading in a pool of pea and ham soup. The puke green sludge isn’t the stuff you’ll find in a bistro but the quality beef in a nicely spiced gravy more than compensates. Beef variants include standards mushroom, bacon & onion, curry, burgundy, or Guinness, korma, tandoori, Thai Chicken for the more adventurous.
Now if you told me there was a beef rendang pie as well, I’d definitely say that’s pie in the sky. Funnily enough…
