Best Meat Pie in Melbourne
According to Andrew White at weekendnotes.com, the best meat pie in Melbourne comes from Dinkum Pies in Block Arcade, Melbourne.
1. Dinkum Pies
29 Block Arcade, Melbourne.
Tues - Friday 8am - 4pm Sat - 9am - 3pm
I heard somewhere, that 'Dinkum Pies' won the 'Age' magazine best pie in Melbourne award. This was a while back, naturally I wanted to try one myself. Which I did just recently.
2. Pie in the Sky
43 Olinda - Monbulk Rd, Olinda (Dandenong Mountains).
Mon - Fri: 10am - 4.30pm
Sat and Public holidays: 10am - 5pm
Sun: 9.30am - 5pm.
If you think it was pie in the sky, my idea that I could have five Melbourne pies, then this selection brings credence to that theory. However if you read on you'll see there are in fact five Melbourne locations where you can get a good pie.
3. Kieth's Pies
119 Burnley St, Richmond
Well I've got to add my old favourite, Kieth's pies. If this was a 'Best Pasty' competition then this place would take out the gold. The pie's aren't in the same league as their pasties, so only the bronze for the pies, but they are still worth a mention as they are very good.
4. Ferguson Plarre
Now, I once had a take home family pie from here. Unfortunately it was extremely greasy, and not spectacular at all. However, I've since had their 'Angus Beef Pie', from their branch at Highpoint, and it was indeed a high point; it was lovely. Meaty chunks, with a tasty gravy and a crispish (I know that's not a word but I think it is a perfect description) pastry, an all round achiever.
5. Four & Twenty Angus Pepper Steak Pies
I never thought I'd find myself talking up 'Four & Twenty' which is a shame, because not only is it a great icon of Aussie Rules (which I always love talking up), but the fact that the name is fantastic, as it comes from the nursery rhyme 'Sing a song of sixpence'.
Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye.
Four and twenty blackbirds,
Baked in a pie.
6. Gillies Pies
Look I have to tell you these pies in my mind, are at least as good as Dinkum Pies. I've got 'em down here because they are made in Bendigo and you can't get them here in Melbourne, to my knowledge anyway? If you could, I'd reckon they'd just about pip Dinkum's at the post.
7. Suttton's Pies
Again a recommendation from my partner (she remembered them from when she was a girl). You can see why I've kept her. These babies can only be purchased another few hundred miles up the track (I could say kilometres, but those Frenchies won't let us use Champagne, so they can keep their metric too, since it doesn't fit in).
