I decided to try an Australian meat pie from Tuck Shop. A tray had just come out of the oven, so my steak and Guinness pie was piping hot. There were large chucks of beef, and mushrooms in a green peppercorn and horseradish gravy. It was encased in a flaky crust. I really enjoyed it.
The mini doughnuts ($6 for 6, $10 for a dozen) are made hot and fresh and tossed in to a brown paper bag with the flavored sugar of your choice. The doughnuts themselves are light, crispy and airy, but the sugars elevated them to the next level. We tried the Purple Cow (purple potato, sugar and bacon) and Paris Time (lavender, pistachio, vanilla sugar). I loved the purple cow – it was a far better method of incorporating bacon in to a donut than just pieces of bacon stuck in the glaze. I got bacon goodness in each bite.
