“Crunchy Pie Face”

Crunch Level

Considering the pie itself was called the ‘crunchy’ steak pie. I would’ve assumed that there would be a bit more crunch. I mean it wasn’t soggy, but didn’t have that extra hit of crunch I was expecting.


The taste was a bit above average. I mean it had a good mix of gravy and meat chunks. I thought it was on par. Nothing special though.

Meat Chunk sizes

This is where this pie shines. I mean the meat chunk sizes where perfect. Not too big, not too small.


The temperature was also good, the meat pie was nice and hot, but not too hot.

Messiness Level

The messiness level was perfect, it wasn’t too messy and not too neat. I got a bit of gravy on my thumbs when I was eating. But licking it off was perfect. Because it wasn’t too hot, when the meat fell on my thumbs it didn’t burn me. I was able to lick the meat of my hands with ease.


I would say this meat pie is a good 6.5/10. It tasted good, although you could probably find pies with this quality for much cheaper.
