Recently I went to Whistler for our company Christmas party and one of the places I wanted to try was Peaked Pies. Whenever I see people on Instagram visiting Whistler, they always seem to drop by Peaked Pies!
The shop is rather small and only seats about 10 people or so. They offer Australian-style meat pies in flavours such as the traditional Aussie, beef curry, and butter chicken. Each pie is about $7-8 and is like a small meal or really big snack.
Conveniently enough Aussie Pie Guy was parked near where I work and we all decided to get some pie! Yes it was pie day a few weeks ago but it turns out it was actually pie month ;) Okay fine we would’ve went anyway hahaha
All their pies are savoury except one which is the Sweetie Pie which is a smaller apple pie. I thought the pies would be a bit cheaper but they’re $8 each. I was never much of a savoury pie person so we’ll see how these hold up.
I chose the Shane’s Pie which is their most popular pie. The crust on this was perfect. Inside it was stuffed with tender beef short rib, vegetables and potatoes. I actually did not end up with much potato or vegetables except at the end where it was stuck on this one side of the pie. I was expecting it to be more dispersed throughout the pie. The beef was really delicious accompanied by their apricot hoisin sauce. I couldn’t really tell it was hoisin sauce at first. The pie was not disappointing for $8.
My co worker tried the Kanga pie and don’t worry it’s actually stuffed with ground venison meat and not real ground kangaroo meat! This was also quite tasty. I guess for $8 these are in line with other food trucks and worth a try.
*EDIT* Matt from Aussie Pie Guy contacted me and said there is actually only kangaroo meat in the Kanga. Sorry about that! I must have hearing problems…
As I mentioned in my last post, I visited the Last Crumb Bakery when I discovered that it was right next to Burgoo. They also serve afternoon tea on the weekends now too. The space inside is bright and spacious.
I like how they write the descriptions directly on the glass!
This was the Peppermint Chocolate Cake from last month so everything was peppermint flavoured! I like how it wasn’t overly sweet or chocolatey and the cake was very moist. There also wasn’t too much cream and it had the right amount of peppermint. The salted caramel hot chocolate was perfect too and complete with latte art or should I say hot chocolate art? I believe they are participating the in the Hot Chocolate Festival right now!
The Coconut Cream Pie was also very enjoyable! The slice was also huge! I’ve never ordered a coconut cream pie before but I liked it more than I expected. The cream wasn’t too overwhelming actually and the coconut flavour was mild but detectable. Which is fine since I’m not a huge fan of coconut anyway! haha
This was the Devil’s Food cake with vanilla buttercream. It was also equally tasty! Pretty much like the peppermint chocolate but without the peppermint. Mmm I’m totally coming back to try their other goodies! It’s also nice that they’re not located downtown!
