There’s only so much you can fit into a weekend getaway, and thankfully Red Neds Gourmet Pie Bar made it onto our itinerary!
I first read about Red Neds at Citrus and Candy, and it has since been on my to-eat list!
Why, you ask? Apart from a wall studded with framed awards and medals, which is a good enough reason in itself, there are over 50 varieties of pie available! That’s seriously enough variety to have a different pie for every meal of every day for over two weeks!
Some of the flavours to name are Lambs Fry with bacon and onions, Thai Green Curry Lamb in coconut cream and vegetables, African Chicken and so so much more!

We start with the Japanese Wagyu Beef Pie which is filled with tender chunks of Wagyu, onion and cheese in a hearty sauce. The crust is rich and flaky – absolutely scrumptious.

We also have the Lobster, Prawn and Barramundi Pie which is finished with sesame seeds and flakes of parsley. The creamy white sauce has luscious notes of coconut but we find the barramundi’s fishyness unpleasantly overpowering.

Like tomato sauce, I think having chips on the side enhances the pie experience; and these crunchy beer battered chips are the perfect match.

I would have liked to taste more varieties but my stomach said no. I guess the Drunken Beer Steak and the Smoked Chicken & Camembert Cheese pies will have to wait for whenever I’m next in town.

  2. Oh not so good for the indecisive when hungry – like me! I dont think I have ever had a seafood pie, but I am definitely intrigued. Thanks for making me feel like pie Jen!! 🙂 That shot of hot chips had me at hello…
