For tried and true Australian fare — including from-scratch meat pies, vegetable pies and dessert pies — head to the Waltzing Kangaroo. This endearing, family-run business serves up fresh-baked, hand-held delicacies. From the classic steak and gravy to the more unique Thai green curry chicken, each pie is rife with slow-cooked, tender meat served in a handmade shortcrust and puff pastry shell. Plus where else can you score the ever-popular Australian side dish, mushy peas, in town? This place is legit. Snag an egg custard tart for dessert.
