Tourtière Australienne lands on Monkland Avenue

July 25, 2013 , In: Kid Friendly Restaurant , With: No Comments


This location has since closed but their original in the Plateau is still open.


Is this Monkland week?  No, but it seems like it.  I love my little street, and although there are definitely a few things I’d change about it (lower the rents to encourage more independent businesses!!), I’m happy to have it around the corner.

TA - Head Pies Close Up

I wrote about Tourtière Australienne ages ago in Urban Expressions but never managed to put it up on the blog.  It’s an Australian pie shop run by a Quebecois woman and her New Zealand husband.  What’s the Australian connection?  They both lived there for a very long time.  It’s offers a selection of Australian Pies (including vegetarian options), desserts (Lamington’s – which are apparently having a moment, Tim Tam Tiramisu, Pavlovas) and Australian (& South African & English) food products like licorice, Tim Tams, and Lyle’s Golden Syrup.

6 - Frozen Pies

The mini frozen pies I find perfect to have on hand for when the fridge is empty.  I’m partial to the Rogan Josh, Chicken & Mushroom and the Ned Kelly (which I’m not sure if it’s available frozen because there is a whole egg in the middle).
