Meat pie was one of my favourites when I was studying in Australia. You can find them at just about everywhere. However, it's not easy to find a classic Aussie pie in Singapore. A lot of the pies here are made of puff pastry rather than short crust pastry. What I liked about the pies at Big Ben’s Place is the fact that they were close to the ones I used to eat in Australia.
The crust was just right such that it was not overly crumbly but firm to the bite. You can almost describe it as "al dente". My favourite was the beef and mushrooms. They used nice beef chunks. I think that the amount of beef chunks have been reduced somewhat in recent days due to the increasing food cost. Although the pies here might not be as good as the meat pies I had in Australia, it came close.
When you’re there, try the steak, bacon and Guinness pie. The chicken pie is one of its best sellers, but I did not like it as much as the beef pies. Even in Australia, I seldom ate chicken pie. I felt that the gravy was too watery and “herbal” for my liking. For me, Big Ben’s is the place to satisfy my craving for an Aussie pie.
