Review - The Pie Tin

WEBThePieTin-01 WEBThePieTin-03

The pie’s practically an Aussie icon, and we’ve all got our favourite spot.

This one’s clearly on the way to becoming part of the fabric of the new Newtown. It’s set in an airy refit of a modest 1912 Federation warehouse; its history detailed on a plaque by the door.

They offer a filling, rustic pie experience, made into a meal for a reasonable price.

Southern Style Slow Roasted Pork with Tangy Apple and BBQ Sauce ($10/with 2 sides) lacked a solid backbone of seasoning, and ached for a sloppier sauce.


Gravy is offered, and with hindsight I’d take it - along with the kumera fries I coveted from my neighbour’s plate. Both would improve even fancier flavours, like North African Style Slow Roasted Lamb with Chermoula Spice, Eggplant and Capsicum ($11).

Canoodling couples exchanging forkfuls of sugar let you in on the real highlight...

Owner Sarah Martin tells me the secret to her dreamy Oreo Cookie Pie ($6.50/slice), is not messing too much with the cookie itself: “We just try and enhance what’s already there.”


Don’t let the epic proportions of The Apple Pie that Ate Newtown ($6.50/slice) send you the way of the pelican – your mouth should never hold more than your belly can.

My dining companion for this meal was Australian Pork advocate Mitch Edwards. He's pictured doing his best not to look intimidated, as he documents a sweet onslaught of pie.  For a trim man, he did a most admirable job.
