Harry's Cafe de Wheels

If you come to Australia, one food that you often find here is a meat pie...It was described by New South Wales Premier Bob Carr in 2003 as Australia's "national dish".

After I read many foodie blogs like Grab your fork and Not quite Nigella about 1 famous pie shop called Harry's Cafe de Wheels....looked at the photos they took...Oh my goodness ! Can't wait to try...So lucky they got the pie cart at Hay market where is easy to go...(but the most successful one is in Woolloomooloo)

Around 10.30 am..I was so hungry cuz had a small piece of bread and green tea at home for breakfast. Since that time most of the restaurant has not open yet, The pie was quickly comed up to my mind...Perfect time to try !

Curry Tiger : Curry meat pie with mashed potato, mushy peas and gravy ($5.30)

Of course, I definitely went for the Curry Tiger Pie (The famous one)..A curry pie is layered on top with a thick of mashed potato, a pillow of mushy peas and filled with a lake of gravy....and comes with a fork !

The pie is on the paper plate...I had to carefully carry it to the table...It's time !!! I digged it ...bite by bite...started from the gravy, the peas, the mashed potato...and finally.......

There were chunks of real hot tender beef underneath. The curry was quite spicy..and the taste is similar as Japanese curry in my idea..haha.. The pastry bottom was just a little gluey, but the top was flaky, the filling was meaty, the potato was creamy, peas and gravy... wow.....It is really good when you have this hot pie in the winter..Don't you think so?
