    I remember my best pie vividly. It was on 27 September 2008 in Jolimont east Melbourne.

    Penola SA just over the border from Victoria, Windara Bakery, very good pie 8/10 but not sure what flavour it was, it defiantly wasn't the Mushroom I asked for.

    No mushroom in a mushroom pie....that's different.

    That's a good road trip meal that I often have when doing big miles. A meat pie washed down with a chocolate milk keeps me going for hours.

    Gotta say, I prefer "Iced Coffee" to hot watered coffee, I guess its just one step away from using less Murray water.
    I will not use the bloody plastic squirt all over ya clothes, plastic sauce sashites.Rather go without sauce..
    Still waiting for the "Crow Pie"?

    I had a dead set ripper Steak & Mushroom pie from the general store at Balnarring beach yesterday. Although I don't reckon I got what I asked for. I think it was the Moroccan Lamb pie next to it. Tasted magnificent.

    Located on the Mornington Peninsula Victoria, Balnarring Beach is a few km's away from the Balnarring Village shops. Just take the Balnarring Beach Road.

    I used to spend a lot of time down there as a kid. On the same road is the former home of the Harley Club of Victoria. They used to race bikes along the beach in the 1920's.

    Sorry...no photo of the pie or anything else. I thought about taking a pic but scoffed the fucker down instead. Delish. 6 bucks but well worth it.

    Looks tasty but somewhat deflated.

    Yes well the "deflation" is due to me eating the pie by hand and not using a knife and fork to open it up with the skill of a surgeon like you do. You see my aging teeth are somewhat blunt these days and the biting did have the unfortunate consequence of crushing the pastry casing which to the untrained eye could be misconstrued as deflation. . After taking a couple of chomps to enter the inner sanctum of the pie I carefully peeled away some of the pastry to reveal the meaty chunks laying within its interior. These chunks are bathed in a tasty gravy which, in my opinion, was a little light in viscosity but it was non the less very flavoursome.  But I didn't stop there because I know you have an eye for detail. That's why I lifted a couple of the chunks out and placed them on top so you could easily see the chunkiness of the meat. I did this in a way so as not to make it obvious to the audience here that I had "interfered" with the presentation of the pie and I hope I achieved my aim of making it look very natural in appearance. The fact you didn't make mention of it makes be think I achieved this aim.  

    I'm sure when you visit this place and do your surgical dissection of said pie it will be far more visually appealing and thus get wider acceptance and applause from the punters on here.

    Served up of an ancient porcelain plate of English origin and with a small, but adequate, square receptacle containing the freshly squeezed "Dead Horse" the presentation was beyond any criticism from me. As mentioned in a previous post I choose not to contaminate my pies with the red blood of a deceased GG so that I can saviour the pure enjoyment and experience of quaffing down an excellent "Rat Coffin". Cutlery was also provided to assist with it's consumption but, again, as I have said in a previous post I prefer to eat meat pies in the traditional method, by hand. So the tomato sauce and eating irons were left unused.

    To top things off it is a pleasant and scenic ride out to Noojee so that should make for a very pleasant experience for you also.

    Bon Appetit.

    I tell ya next I go to Noojee it will be for the pub not a deflated Wine and Beef pie, I am guessing that's what it was as
    you sound pissed, must have been a strong one. I did notice you had used your fingers to place a morsel of meet on the top
    of the pie causing the deflation, I would have used a fork.

    Lol. No wine in this one just a plain meat pie. I'd give it a 9 outa 10. Losing a point for the slightly runny gravy. I've not eaten at the pub. We both know the next time you visit Noojee you'll be going to this joint for a Dog's Eye with Dead Horse. Here is the "before" pic. Before I started to demolish it. I only went to this joint for a coffee but when I saw this pie.....well I just had to try one. HD Forums Australia - 20190425_102209.jpg
