Big Blowhole $6
We stopped at this place for brunch on our last day in Kiama, carrying all our giant backpacks and duffel-bags to the train station. The pie shop operates as a local cafe, with cosy lounges and a long table that was able to seat our entire party of ten; their signature is the "Big Blowhole", an ode to the main tourist attraction of the seaside town. This consisted of any pie topped with mashed potato, peas and gravy, a combination I first tasted at a Pie Face branch and I must say, this place blew them out of the water (that's a pun. I'm funny.)
Their pies were gorgeous, I had the cheese and bacon big blowhole and honestly - pastry, cheese, bacon, beef, potato, peas and gravy - how could anyone complain? The pastry was flaky (see photo below) and golden, the filling rich and meaty, the mash and peas creamy, soft, perfect and the gravy thick and tasty. A bargain at only $6. The next two photos are taken by Lisa.
