Robertson’s Pie Shop

Pie shop packetRobertson’s Pie Shop. It’s famous and it sells lots of pies, sweet and savoury. The savoury was ok, nothing special for me as South Australia holds its own as far as bakeries go. We have some fantastic bakeries.

Cheese, bacon and beef pie

The cheese, bacon and beef pie was enjoyable. Nice and cheesy on top with some slightly soggy bacon bits and gravy. The pastry is quite heavy on the bottom and buttery.

Beef and mushroom pie

The beef and mushroom pie was totally run of the mill. Beef, gravy and mushroom slices.

Once we finished savoury, though, things got saucy.

Cherry cream pie

Wow! Take a pie, bake it filled with cherries, take the top off, fill with fresh whipped sweetened cream and then place the lid back on. Thirty cents extra for cream! Fantastic. It gives my favourite Clarendon bakeries Sour cherry doughnut a run for the money. That’s a big call. It may even be better. Why the heck is this place out in the middle of nowhere? I would be a bona fide fan girl. I would visit every week. Cherries are amazing!

Problems:

Hard to share!

Too quick to eat!

So good that I’d be tempted to drive for two hours into the middle of nowhere to get another one!

Sour Cherry Doughnut - Clarendon Bakery

Sour Cherry Doughnut – Clarendon Bakery

This is a post for anyone who really, really loves food. It’s a post about unhealthy, carbohydrate and fat laden deep-fried goodness. I’m talking about Clarendon Bakery, situated on the Main Road of Clarendon. If you’re heading there from the Southern suburbs (think Flagstaff Hill etc), it’ll be on your right after you pass the hotel.

Clarendon Bakery makes the most delicious doughnut. It’s better than Krispy Kremes or whatever other American franchise the Eastern States try to lord over us. It’s better than the old jam doughnuts you get at the Adelaide Show.

It’s a doughnut filled with sour cherry (think morello cherries), sliced open and filled with FRESH cream. I’m sure everyone appreciates the taste of fresh cream with a touch of icing sugar, just as no one appreciates bakers cream. I appreciate that vile stuff even less when I ask someone behind a bakery counter if they use fresh cream, and they protest that they do, and I buy something, and it has bakers cream in it. The stuff is vile. This is the opposite. Clarendon Bakery only use fresh cream.

Go there, buy a pasty (choose from Cornish, cheese & bacon, Clarendon special or classic) and help it slide down with a sour cherry doughnut. Their pasties are really good, as are the pies. You will not regret it. Unless you’re dairy or gluten intolerant. It still might be worth it!
