Ahh Austrailia! Australia is on my list of places I would love to visit one day. I have heard it is a beautiful country with amazing cuisine. Till that day however, I am happy to have found a little taste of Australia right here in Calidornia.
Aussie Pie Kitchen first opened it’s doors in Santa Monica in 2014. Offering classic Aussie pies, this place quickly became popular with foodies. Just this November 2015, Aussie Pie Kitchen opened up their second location in Inglewood.
I was so happy when I got the chance to check out this second location. Their menu consists of various made from scratch pies. Among the delicious offerings are classic aussie, ratatouille veggie, chicken tarragon, spicy madras veggie and lamb and rosemary. Customers have the choice of adding sides to their pies. The sides are stacked right on top and underneath the pie.
It was really hard for me to choose which pie I wanted but ended up choosing the Chicken Tarragon!
The chicken tarragon pie has chicken thighs marinated in Chardonnay, worsted shire and lemon zest. It is caramlized on a skillet and braids with cream mirepoix, herbs and spices.
I chose to get it “Tiger stack” with two sides, one on top and one on bottom. My chciken tarragon tiger stack consisted of roasted garlic mashed potatoes and croissant sausage stuffing.
I loved this pie right from the start. The crust is wonderfully buttery and flaky. The chicken inside is so tender. The mashed potatoes are perfectly creamy. The croissant sausage stuffing is unlike no other stuffing! It has sausage and kale. The whole pie is deliciously rich and very fulfilling.
Alongside this pie, I got a flat white.
Aussie Pie Kitchen offers coffee made from Vittoria Coffee, a well known Australian manufacturer. I chose to get a flat white since that is a coffee beverage that originated in Australia. I was going for the full up taste of Australia in this visit! 😉
I enjohed the flat white very much. With a ristretto shot of espresso and steamed whole milk, this drink was the perfect pick me up drink for the day! It wasn’t too strong but just the right combination of milk and espresso.
I may not make it to Australia anytime soon but with their yummy Aussie pies and flat white, I get to have a little tatse of Australia right near home.
