      Pie is a pretty reasonable representation of the pies I've had in Sydney or Melbourne. But really, the best meat pie (aussie style) I've had was in Ulladulla, NSW.
      Also, PieFace is not real pie ;P

        Yup, Aussie Pie Guy. I've never had the real thing, but APG's pies taste good to me. They have a few different kinds to suit your taste too.

        They're at the art gallery downtown this weekend as part of "Street Food City" (http://www.dineoutvancouver.com/event...) until Sunday, so there's no excuse not the try them!

        Only downside is the price...but they do use higher-quality ingredients than most Australian or British meat pies, I reckon... :P

            There is a place in Whistler if you're super keen on them called Peak Pies, though I hear if you eat too many Aussie pies your daughters turn out to be 'easy' (caveat emptor).

              I was walking by the Milk Bar (just north of 33rd on Main St) and they had a sign in the window advertising Australian meat pies, "100% authentic". Didn't go in but might be worth a try?

              I've had a pie from the food truck and it was excellent, especially since it was a cold day.

                Possibly they're outsourcing APG's pies. "100% authentic" may not imply 100% made in-house ;-)

                But I will go give it a try. I was there a couple of times early last summer. Owner lady is nice, says she grew up in the 'hood and went to General Brock across the street. I had a really nice turkey/gruyere panini for like $5. I'm glad to see they're still around, and secretly hope Little Mountain Coffee Co. a few doors over don't cannibalize Milk Bar's sales.

                  If it is the frozen APG pies, then $7.50 for a pie and a pop is not a bad deal. If you buy direct from APG it's $26 for four frozen pies. I'll have to try it sometime too, I'm often darting around in that area and wanting a quick lunch.
