It has been well over a year since I first heard about The Pie Tin, a glorious shop in Newtown specialising in sweet and savoury pies. I haven't ventured much to Newtown since my uni days and when I recently found myself in the area, made sure to drop by (finally) for some pies.
If you're on King Street, just turn into Brown Street (where the 7-11 is) and you'll see a grey building where The Pie Tin is located. There was a long line up of people ordering pies and most of the seats were taken. Luckily we were there for some takeaway and the line moved quite fast. Having said that, I really wanted to try the Southern Style shredded pork pie and I saw that there were only two left in the window - hurry up line and don't let anyone before me snap them up!
The slice of Maltesers pie was really good. Light and fluffy malt flavoured cream with a thin biscuity base. It actually took me three sittings to finish off the slice because I felt full and it was a big slice. It still tasted just as good after being in the fridge for a while.
It was really hard to pick a sweet pie to try because they all sounded sooooo good! Other contenders were the Mississippi Mud Pie, Snickers Pie, Coconut Cream Pie....
PS. There were a few signs around the store advertising their end of day special. If I remember correctly, I think the deal is 2 for 1 in the last 15 minutes each day - what a good deal!
