Boomerang Pies

Boomerang Pies serves hand-held "Australian style" pies with various savory fillings. The $4.50 pies are shaped like little chicken pot pies and are deep fried. My wife and I tried four different pies. The chicken and mushroom and traditional beef pies were great. The chicken and mushroom was basically a chicken pot pie. The traditional beef was filled with beef and a gravy made with worcestershire sauce among other things. As my wife said, it "went down easy". The Thai chicken pie was pretty good. It was a little spicy, and the peanuty flavors seemed more (Americanized) Vietnamese than Thai to me. I'd recommend skipping the sauce that came with it, which was your basic gloppy sweet and sour. The bbq pie might be some Australian's idea of bbq, but they really shouldn't try to pass it off in Austin. It's filled with steak, beans, bbq sauce, and cheddar cheese. It sounds better than it tastes, believe me. The pies varied in filling-ness. I could easily eat two of the chicken & mushroom or traditional beef pies, but not the other two, which were more dense.

All in all, I enjoyed the meal, and I think I'll be back.
