  • The Tiger, number 26 on the top 100 Sydney dishes to die for list (The Sunday Telegraph, Dec 14)
Dating back to the late 1930's, Harry's Cafe de Wheels is an iconic Sydney establishment. First set up outside the Wollomooloo naval dockyard where it still remains it has expended to other areas of Sydney and Newcastle.

Making number 26 on the 100 Sydney dishes to die for list is The Tiger. Having had other Harry's pies in the past, I was keen to try this pie.

A meal in itself, the beef pie was topped with mashed potato, mushy peas and gravy. With a decent amount of mashed potato and mushy peas the pool of gravy sitting on top of the pie quickly disappeared. I was tempted to ask for more. A little messy a number of napkins were needed, but was easily forgiven. Overall it was a filling and tasty pie that I will order again!

If you haven't tried The Tiger, get to your local Harry's and order one! If pies aren't your thing don't be deterred, Harry's also serves hot dogs and hot rolls.
