When in Australia and coming face to face with a real Aussie “food cart” how can I not try an Aussie Pie Floater? Right? Originating in Adelaide this was commonly sold on pie-carts… in the old days, horse drawn!
It is the strangest pie I have ever seen. With in-laws from Adelaide, I have heard of it but have not seen it on earlier trips to Australia so this was, to me, a must-try item.
Harry’s Café de Wheels in Newcastle (which we found by accident) had it, so it was a pie for lunch.
Originally it was pie-on-peas but I got mine in the peas-on-pie format. I humbly conclude that when it enters the mouth, the taste bud will not be able to tell the difference. My taste bud told my brain it was yummy.
I can also affirm that this combo is super filling to the stomach so size does not matter (at all). As I looked at lots of photos on the cart’s wall I picked to share 2 on this blog as most will have heard of them.
So how can it bad, eh?
