Has anyone tried the Aussie/Kiwi meat pies from DUB pies down on Columbia Street? I received a delivery menu from them recently and was definitely curious about their offerings.

    They do have some good pies, some mediocre pies and some not so good ones. The were wholesaling to several bars and cafes, but ordered to stop since they did not have an FDA approved kitchen, which you have to have if you are cooking wholesale products that contain meat or cheeseproducts. It is to protect the consumer from unsafe or dangerous practices.

    Curious about their latte/capps- why were they so good????

      Tried them last night. I'm really not familiar with Aussie/Kiwi meat pies, so I can't make comparisons. But I thought they were fine. Not spectacular, but good, and they really hit the spot on a cool autumn night. I'll go there again when in the mood for something warm and hearty and (especially) convenient.

      A friend and I shared a sausage roll and 3 pies - plain mince, chunky steak & cheese, chicken & vegetables (total cost: only $15!). I would have liked to sample the shepherd's pie, but these were the only options left when I got there near closing time. The chunky steak & cheese was the best - tender pieces of beef and warm sharp white cheddar that became a sauce for the beef. I'd get the chicken & vegetables again if in a pinch, but would decline the sausage roll. I found it bland & dry. The mince pie was ok, but I think it would be better with cheese. All pies had the same crust: flaky, yet somehow slightly greasy/soggy at the same time.

      I wouldn't send anyone out of their way for these pies, but if you're in the neighborhood and wondering about dub, I say give it a try.

        You can find far far better versions of the same sorts of items, with free wifi and australian beer/wine at Tuck Shop in Manhattan (see link below, and please discuss it over there, 'cuz this is the Outer Boroughs board).

          I've had the steak pie and the chicken and vegetable pie. I thought the steak was better. Also don't be fooled by the size, they are quite filling. Wanted to try the lamingtons, but they were out of them.

            I've tried the Shepard's pie and the breakfast roll. Shepard's pie was wonderful, hot flavorful goodness in a pastry packet. The breakfast roll was "eh". Not great, but i'm not a fan of warmed over eggs. I will say that they have the BEST Cappucino and Latte's on columbia, And the attitude is twenty times better than Margaret's next door. Why is her husband so mean?

              I haven't had them, but my partner has and he says they are extrememly tasty. He had the shepherds pie (I guess it is covered with mashed potatoes and cheese) and his coworker had the philly cheese steak. He said the fillings on both tasted exactly the same, but really good!!

                  I think they were made to stop selling their meat pies at Tea Lounge by a regulatory body, and so opened their own shop in Red Hook.

                  I recall a dire announcement about the feds getting to them, from their website.
