    Love a good pie. Every time I see a small town bakery advertising “Australia/NZ/worlds best pies” I test the claim. So far the wild venison pie at Miles Better Pies in Te Anau is the king. as for condiments, none. I buy quality pies and want to taste the pie. I do like a peas, mash and gravy combo with a pie though. Usually from House of Pie in Matraville at 2am.

    Well if we are doing a national tour Temora bakery has to be on the list.

    I'm a Vilis pie man myself. Vilis have a cafe/bakery at Ourimbah on the Central Coast. They are very good.

    There a pie shop at Nelson Bay that has a few very imaginative creations. I recommend a visit.. Pie in the Sky Cowan. The one in Bilpin isn't bad at all..The Woy Woy Peninsula (Woy Woy, Umina, Ettalong etc) has a plethora of pie shops, non outstanding, but the German bakery in Umina seems to win a few gongs..

    Lastly, the only condiment needed is tomato sauce or nothing. Also I might try Adam's cheese add. Sounds good..

    I would say that a meat pie is the only food for which tomato sauce is the best condiment option

    Think the one at Nelson Bay is Red Ned's, went there once many years ago and they were very nice and as you say some unusual varieties. Used to be a semi regular at Pie in the Sky at Cowan and usually their pies are good but last time we went the pies just didn't look right, it was like they had too much filling in it and had overflowed, was hungry at the time and seeing there is no where else close by to grab something to eat so still got a pie, they didn't taste anywhere near as good as usual and both of us had heart burn afterwards, it has actually put me off going again as it it is a bit of a side trip to get there.

    He's done quite a few pie reviews, he's also looking for the best fish 'n chips. As far as pies go the best I've had in QLD since moving here from Sydney are from Kenilworth Bakery. Can't say about Sydney area but I always meant to stop in at Mountain High pies at Wentworth Falls or Robinson Pie Shop. Never got around to either.

    I'm surprised you passed the citizenship test in the first place.

    It won't be long before pubs only sell pies with a knife in them.

    Will have to check out his fish and chips reviews. Haven't been to Moutain High pies at Wentworth Falls but I don't rate Robertson Pie shop on the two pies I have had there, mind you both times I have been was late in the day and they didn't have much left, there were a few on the menu I wanted to try but they were sold out.

    Pie by itself these days thanks.

    As a kid I had a ritual towards pies.

    1. Take lid off
    2. Add sauce
    3. Put lid back on
    4. Remove now sauced lid and consume
    5. Mix sauce and mince, consuming with spoon
    6. Add more sauce to pastry, fold and eat like a sausage roll.

    KFC Zinger pies are f**king rubbish, they taste nothing like a zinger, more like some mediocre chicken curry pie from a shitty bakery.
