Flaky Tart...goes savoury

Degustation | May 27, 2009 03:30 PM

I noticed a few days ago that Flaky Tart has introduced savoury pies and I managed to snag one today. They only had the steak and mushroom pie but it was utterly delicious. Picture their exquisite light, flaky crust filled with tender chunks of steak in an unctuous sauce made with Hockley dark ale, and studded with bits of carrots and mushrooms.

It may be a bit underseasoned for some folks but I don't tend to like very salty foods, so it was fine for me as I could really taste the beef and dark ale. I also like that fact that it was crammed full of beef and had just enough sauce to moisten it, rather than the opposite effect of little bits of beef swimming in liquid.

The steak is hormone-free, steroid-free beef from Abbott Farms. They said they also make chicken pot pies but there weren't any today. I suspect they are making small batches and seeing what demand is like.

Small 5" pie was $5.50. A small savoury pie and one of their sweets for dessert and that's a nice quick dinner.
