Respond to Review of Funky Pies
Review: I love Funky Pies and have been to this place a few times when visiting Sydney and also enjoyed their pies many times at places that sell them in Melbourne. I've never found another pie quite like them: they get the crust flaky and just right and the filling moist, which other pies fail to do. Today when we visited the place had changed a bit since the last time I was there: the kitchen had been upgraded, leaving not as much seating. The pies come with the option of either salad or mashed potatoes, peas and gravy (the latter great for vegans who like the opportunity to have traditional dishes they might normally miss out on. Today the mash wasn't great though and I wished I'd ordered the salad.) We weren't adventurous and stuck with two varieties of pie we knew we liked: the Funky Chunky with Shiitake mushroom (a popular one and the kind of pie you could slip by an omnivore and they'd likely not know the difference) and the Easy Chic'n Cheesy with a cheesy sauce. There are between 10 and 20 varieties of pie to choose from with a number of types of curry filling and Italian-style ones. In addition you can buy vegan cakes and sweets and vegan specialty grocery items as well as fair trade organic coffee. The staff are friendly and helpful. This is always a go-to eatery when I'm in Sydney.
