WT Pie Award Winner


A pie for me.

Gourmet Steak and Cheese Pie - NZD4.20 (about MYR11.50 now) with flaky pastry. The taste is very rich and cheesy until after eating half a pie, I got satiated but it is delicious.

Look at the creamy cheese and chocolaty gooey steak sauce.

Richoux Patisserie http://www.richouxpatisserie.co.nz/ - an award winning pie shop. I wanted to try many other types of pie especially the Chicken Cranberry & Camembert pie but this shop is closed on Sundays and it closed at 4.30 pm on weekdays when I am still at work so I only got to try one pie on one Saturday. So sad.

  1. They have great pies there. I prefer shortcrust pastry though.

    1. Shortcrust pastry would be even more filling.

    1. If you order a pie listed as a main dish in a restaurant, then it is huge. These are just pies sold in a pastry shop. It is the quality that counts more for me, not the size. The beef and cheese filling is so tasty!

  3. I heard that the pies in Australia and NZ are very good.

    1. The fillings are very tasty! I know it is so cliche but the beef there are much more delicious than the wagyu beef that I ate here. Like TM says, the moon overseas is brighter and bigger, hahahaha!

  4. Wow! Look at that! Cheese oozing out of the steak pie. Yums!

    I love pies very much when their pastries are nicely done to crisp layered perfections. Sometimes we get pies here that looked like kari-pap pastries which were not layered. Bluek!

    1. I am very careful when I eat pies locally. Have to go for those pies that have very good review else may be disappointed.
