Respond to Review of Funky Pies
Review: Went to funky pies in Feb 10 on recommendation of a friend in Sydney. The pies are absolutely superb. They're pretty big with a huge crispy flaky pastry top and loads of filling. Had the funky chunky which is the meat pie equivalent. Also tried the cheesy chicken which I was less keen on but it's my friends favourite so each to their own. The mash, mushy peas and gravy are must haves for the ultimate aussie experience. I also went for the vegan brownie which was the best I've had anywhere and I've tried lots in Australia,UK and Asia. Moist and mudlike in the middle but dryer and more crumbly on the outside, couldnt be better. The apple pie was also superb. The only thing I wasnt keen on was the sausage roll. I found the herbs (rosemary predominantly I think) a bit overpowering. The staff here are very friendly. I arrived just as they were closing and the owner (angie I think) wouldnt let me pay for the pies which was very generous as I was more than happy to pay. I reciprocated by buying the brownie and apple pie which was a great hardship. All in all this is a fantastic place and hopefully they'll be able to open up more branches in the future. There's got to be room for more places like this with friendly owners, great products and food that you know what it is and how it's made. I'll definitely be visiting every time I'm in Sydney.
