Aussie Pie Floater (of sort)

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.

Sounds different, doesn't it?

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.

Very, very thick pea mush on pie.

Topped with sauces (which I did not ask what kind).

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.

Elton John & Brooke Shields ate here too.

So how can it bad, eh?
