Harry’s Cafe de Wheels, our favorite restaurant in the world, is famous for its pies. It’s been selling them for 70 years from this roadside trailer just down the street from the Woolloomooloo Wharf.
An American pie is fruity, flaky and sweet. An Australian pie is an entirely different concoction. Instead of being filled with sweet apple or cherry goodness, an Aussie pie is filled with meat (usually beef, but sometimes chicken) and covered with layers of mashed potatoes, peas and gravy. It’s a heart attack on a plate.
They’re not for everyone (our friend Traci damn near gagged when she tried one), but the first thing Jamie and I do when we get to Sydney is head to Harry’s.
