Outcome: Unanimous verdict
Salient features: Pies
Ratio decidendi: The only pie in Melbourne that has come close to being in the same league as that of Bakerie in NSW. Buttery and flaky on the outside, with a hearty filling that’s as generous as it is tasty. The eggplant pie was a bit of a letdown but perhaps a case of being a relative failure to its more successful protein siblings. Sandwiches were delish as well but it’s the pies that’ll keep the punters coming back.
