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.
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.
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).
