The Pie Tin, Newtown

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 savoury pies range in price from $5.80 - $7.80 and slices of the sweet pies cost between $7.50 to $10.50.

Your order isn't prepared straight away if you are getting takeaway, instead you are given a small number - that's your cue to move and stand unobtrusively in front of the salad window until your number is called.

Southern style slow roasted shredded pork with apple and bbq sauce

I really liked the filing of the pork pie - it had a sweet flavour from the small pieces of cooked apple floating in the mixture.  The pork was soft and stringy, just how I like it.  I found the bottom of the pie to be a bit thick and wet from the filling so ended up scooping the insides out with a fork to eat, leaving the base behind.

Maltesers Pie

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!

  1. LOVE pie tin esp that malteser pie!

  2. the pulled pork pie is my fave from the savoury pies. i seriously gotta try that maltesers pie. it always sells out by the time i finish my savoury pie lol

  3. We had the Malteser pie on our last visit. And I kinda do love that their slices are so massive!

  4. Hi chocolatesuze: Yep, the maltesers pie is a winner for sure!

    Hi Annie: Maybe you should buy the sweet pie at the same time as your savoury pie. But at least there are a lot of backup options for a second-choice sweet pie

    Hi Helen: Can't complain with value for money :-)

  5. These pies are really wonderful. I love it!
