Before we did our weekly grocery shopping at Eastwood, we had a light supper at this Australian-based café called Pie Face. Pie Face first opened back in 2003. Since then, Pie Face’s branches have spread not just in its native Australia and New Zealand, but also in other countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Korea, and the US.

As its name suggests, Pie Face serves two types of pies: Sweet Pies, which you can enjoy as a dessert, and Premium Pies, made from meat (which honestly reminded me of Sweeney Todd minus the goth theme + cannibalism o_o). Some of their other menu items include coffee/tea/hot chocolate, brownies, and sandwiches.

Our first plate consists of a sausage roll and a Chunky Steak Premium Pie, with beef chunks braised with onions, garlic, and gravy. This is actually one of their bestsellers, and it’s really not hard to see why – The chunks are made from 100% pure beef. Unfortunately though, the same cannot be said for the meat filling inside the sausage roll – The meat tasted pretty good (though it could use a little more salt), but it looked… Strangely unappetizing, at least in my opinion.

This was on my plate – A ham and cheese croissant sandwich, and a Butterscotch Sweet Pie for dessert. I did enjoy the Butterscotch pie even though the cream tasted a little bit too sweet for my liking. The croissant sandwich was fine, but I’m not okay with the fact that they used processed ham and cheese as the filling. Ick.

Even though their main specialty gets high marks from me, I think that Pie Face could use just a teensy bit more improvement with their rolls/sandwiches. I would definitely come back to try more of their meat/dessert pies, though.

Ambiance/Interior: 5/5
