Harry’s Cafe de Wheels, Haymarket

Harry’s Cafe de Wheels is fam­ous for selling pies at around loc­a­tions in Sydney. I worked 1 minute away from their ori­gin­al and icon­ic pie cart in Woolloomooloo pre­vi­ously, and now I work about 5 minutes away from anoth­er. I’ve heard amaz­ing accounts from col­leagues about their pies along the lines of ‘this is the most amaz­ing pie I’ve had — you must try it’.


Try it I did. Not their sig­na­ture ‘tiger’ with mushed peas, mash and gravy, but their chick­en and mush­room pie.


And for prob­ably the first time since being dis­ap­poin­ted con­stantly after read­ing people’s ‘amaz­ing’ encoun­ters with food, I could under­stand why people raved about these pies, and why people kept com­ing back for these pies. This pie was filled to the brim with wal­nut-sized pieces of very tender chick­en breast and mush­room. The pie didn’t try to fill up the empty space by drown­ing the chick­en in sauce either. The pie innards were held togeth­er with a creamy sauce. You could eat the pie without drip­ping sauce all over the place!

Harry’s Cafe de Wheels is loc­ated at 730 – 742 George St, Haymarket NSW 2000.
