steak and kidney pie

quite a warm day, and sunny. i went to tanners hill, deptford, se8, near new cross station, to buy the pie. i first heard of it mentioned here, in the londonist, where it got high praise. so much so that i felt compelled to try it. i think steak and kidney pie is one of the best things about english foods, and to be able to buy one that is praised as the best of its kind and within easy reach of my place is great. i ate one cold, and even unheated, it was delicious, with such alot of beef meat in it, (usually they bulk it out with carrots and potatoes but not these, just beef and kidney).

 it delighted me. i so often get pies with hardly any meat in them, and costing so much more than the £2 each.

the price is a surprise, so good value. i bought 2 at first, and after eating one, i went back and bought another 2 more. haha. this time i bought  a steak and mushroom pie, just to see what it is like. they do chicken too, and maybe i shall buy one next time;  but steak is what i really like because it is not easy to find steak at such a good price. in fact, next time i go i must ask them if they sell the beef, because it would make really good curry. at first on the outside it looked like it sold only fresh meat, no pies. and it was only when i went in and saw through the doorway a table with pies laid out on it, that it sells pies. i think i would never have gone to this place if i have not read of it, it is not on the high street but down a side road. and there are no prices written out. very low key , they obviously rely on word of mouth, but they should really advertise it more with signs and stuff. still i am a great fan of them now, and can only say do go, and buy it, it is what pies should be , but never are.
