Gyoumu Super Assie Pies Report

Post by gonbechan »

So, Senor Gonbe found these beauties at Gyoumu Super. At 900 something yen for 6 in the pack, they are not cheap but compared to what the alternative places selling Aussie Pies @500 something for a single person pie, we thought we would give these a go.

Cooked from frozen in the oven 200C for 25 minutes.
Nice enough. A little saltier than chez Gonbe pies. Less meat and more gravy. The crust is halfway between short and flakey, and I prefer a really flakey crust. But on the whole, a nice little something that does not take all day to make. Great with mash.

That is probably an accurate description of the makeup of that mince.

You know we talked about that. :lol:
Señor Gonbe is the eternal optimist and also a lover of mystery meats like corned 'beef' and spam and sausages etc.
I don't mind salcitas and chorizo etc and I know the arsehole factor is high in things like that but I draw the line at spam and corned 'beef' (in Japan it also has a high horsemeat ratio to 'beef').
Anyway .. Señor Gonbe bought these and says to me, like always, 'They're 100% beef!' and like always I answer, 'Beef arseholes are still 100% beef you know.'
We had to try them though, as in summer I cannot bring myself to go through the whole rigmarole of making flakey pastry, pie filling and then assembling them and the consequent 2 or 3 times of baking them (small Japanese oven the bane of my life) so this was something that could be a gap filler for Señor Gonbe's weekend lunches as he wanes away if he eats only what I eat.

Very near bought a pack - thanks Gonbe for the report. Sounds more than acceptable, if unexceptional. Perhaps "Minimally exceptional" ? :lol:

5 of 10 is how I'd describe McDonalds. Sufficient when that comfort food craving strikes, eh... :lol:

If you're after aussie pies
the rinki dink "4 and twenty pies" are being sold at some select conbini is Tokyo,
The Japan AFL (Australian football league) introduced them I think last year. Not entirely sure
where right now but they are around.

Have a squizz here

I rekon they are pretty crap but I used to make pies for a living so I'm biased.
It is the tasty of a good footy game though.

I never knew that Australia had so many pie shops until I backpacked there years ago.
Those places were definitely a blessing after a night of getting smashed on VB.
I write a load of bollocks, don't take me seriously.
