Best Pies in NZ

I am looking for a great meat pie while in NZ. Fancy pies would be nice, but what I really want is a good mince or steak pie. So far I have heard that Ponsonby Pies is worth a go. I welcome all recommendations as we will be all over both Islands. Thanks!
there's a great place in Nelson called My Pies...it's a small place, off a side street but if you ask anyone in Nelson they can tell you where to go. They have daily specials, which change, but the good ones sell out early so don't wait too late! I'm a vegetarian and it's the only vegetarian pie I found in New Zealand that was enjoyable - blue cheese and kumara - yum!
The above blog link has a good string on Wellignton's best pie purveyors. There are several Trisha's Pies outlets in the city and suburbs, with the original shop along The Parade in Island Bay. This is the place to find a genuine, delicious Kiwi steak and cheese pie.
If you happen to be driving in the South Island, there are very excellent pies to be gad at the general store in Palmerston (about 40 minuted north of Dunedin). Marlow Pies, also available throughout the South Island (based in Dunedin) are also quite good.
Check out Coro Pies in the village of Coromandel - smoked fish ones are to die for - really good - cant say about other flavours as I just had to stick to smoked fish (pie shop around the corner from fish smoking place) yummmmm!
