On one sunny afternoon we decided to make the trip to the Dandenong Ranges to check out Pie in the Sky. We’ve known about this place for a while and know that it’s been featured on TV shows as a spot to visit, famous for their hand-made pies made daily.
Upon arrival and entering we could see that it was an obvious tourist drop in place as there were plenty of tourists there either eating in or buying a pie for takeaway. The eatery itself was quite spacious with plenty of wooden tables and chairs.
The staff seated us at a table, however the table still had crumbs and had not been cleaned from the previous customers. In fact, a lot of the other tables looked the same.
The process was to order and pay at the front counter first so Davin got one of the multiple gold medal winner pies which was the Korma Chicken. It had tender chicken pieces and two coloured vegetables in a creamy yellow curry sauce. I ordered the pumpkin pie which had blends of roasted pumpkin and roasted sweet potatoes with rosemary, garlic, leeks and fresh feta. Both pies came out piping hot with a lovely crispy pastry. The ingredients were fresh and flavoured well. I loved the combinations of my pumpkin pie and would definitely order it again. Davin’s pie had generous chunks of chicken, and combined with the curry sauce it was also quite nice.
Overall the pies were very nice and tasted fresh and hand-made. The service however was very average as I think they must get tourists in everyday and perhaps don’t have enough time to clean and set the tables in time.
