65 Duncan St, Toronto
So we’re about half way through our trip right now, and it’s not that we’re missing home per se, but being proud Aussies, it’s simply not in our nature to turn down the opportunity for a good meat pie.
We’d heard about Kanga before we left and then kinda forgot about it once we got here. Walking back to our hotel from Kensington Market this morning miraculously took us straight past the bright shop front, and we pretty much ran straight across the road to get the taste of home we didn’t realise we both wanted.
The menu is a solid mix of cultures, with everything from the Butter Chix (northern Indian) to the El Diablo (pulled pork and mash), but our hands were tied; we went with the Traditional Aussie. Not particularly cheap at almost CAD$8.00, so we were expecting big things, and Kanga more than delivered.
If you ask most Aussies, they’ll probably tell you that despite the stereotype, they don’t really eat meat pies often. That’s because, frankly, they’re pretty average for the most part. This was hands down the best “traditional” mince meat pie I’ve ever had, absolutely no contest. The flavour was perfect, the ingredients were quality, and the price was justified. Any Aussies in Toronto need to get here soon, because that’s what a meat pie is meant to taste like! Thanks guys!
