Pie Harbour, Queensbay Mall – March 2014

I had previously spotted Pie Harbour in Queensbay Mall, and also in Gurney Paragon Mall, and the offerings looked nice – it was just that I had no need for a meal at those times.  But harbouring a desire for the occasional pie, it was just a matter of time before I washed up on the shores of Pie Harbour, and in this case the port of call was Queensbay Mall.

Why almost every set includes iced lemon tea – which sounds and tastes awful to me – I don’t know – I guess it is cheap, but if in a bottle I suppose it is not.  And I am suspicious of mashed potato as this is often water added to a packet mix.  So rather than the lunch menu, perhaps a la carte would be better.

But the staff was great – we didn’t want the mash, so they offered two garden salads instead.  We didn’t want the iced lemon tea – “Well, what do you want?”, they asked.  We requested coffee instead.  So we ordered kind of set meals, just that we’d modified them. You can see the receipt a little later.

You might spot the nautical theme.

The garden salad was a good volume and fresh, with plenty of vegetables along with the lettuce.  Very often the dressing is sparse, but in this case it was way too much – which is my only criticism of the entire meal. I’d prefer it on the side so I could add the amount I wanted.  The pies were both nice, and the coffee good, and again, voluminous.

Disappointments? As mentioned, it would be better with dressing on the side.
