Aussie Aussie Aussie, Pie Pie Pie

January 26 in Vancouver, Canada marks a great convergence of two events. It’s Australia Day, and running concurrently is the Dine Out Vancouver Festival.

I’m at the North Plaza of the Art Gallery in the city’s downtown/CBD. Here over 20 food trucks are participating in the Street Food City in conjunction with the Dine Out festival. This is the third consecutive year for food trucks to highlight their street food over a period of five days.

One thing I’ve learned after spending time throughout Australia and New Zealand is I’ve frequent serious cravings for their meat pie. Months ago, I looked for meat pies in Vancouver, and with a quick online search, my eyeballs made a beeline to Aussie Pie Guy.

I’ve had the smooth stylins’ of their chook (chicken) pie previously, but I see today they have Kangaroo Pie: “kangaroo mince with sweet potato mash, bacon, and pepperberry spices.” Without hesitation, I get the kanga pie “epic” style, complete with peas, mashed potatoes, and gravy.

First bite in is a winner: savory ground meat with smoky BBQ-like hints from the bacon, the blend of sweet and spicy flavours from the sweet potato and pepperberry, a golden flaky pie crust shell, all topped with just chewy mashed peas, creamy mashed potatoes, and a generous portion of warm thick brown gravy.

I feel loss in the final bite, because the pie is done and gone.

(Watch how I stuff me piehole at the 1 minute 9 second mark in the video here …)

Doesn’t that pie make you want to reach over and dig in? For addicts like me, the Aussie Pie Guy food truck is out and about Vancouver, ready to satisfy everybody’s need for Australian meat pies.
