    Roast Lamb Pie the land of dreams, I have a a free massage and a dab of Waitrose mint sauce for first to deliver

    So happy I live far from such treats otherwise I'd end up fat and fixated by pies

    ^My Missus loves the roast lamb pies but they're quite big and she's quite small so she can only eat half of one. No prizes for guessing where the other half goes .

    I am not a huge pie man, but do like one once a month or so. Its not just pies all western food is so much better represented in Pattaya. All the way from butchers, other specialty shops to dives, nice restaurants and fine dining.

    I had a couple of pies yesterday. The pastry was great but the filling, although tasty in the steak pie (bland in the chicken and mushroom pie), was miniscule. Hardly any meat at all. 125 baht. Yorkies.

    ^Nev I put Yorkies pies in the also-ran category. Best pork sausages in town (that I know of) though, not the frozen ones but the fresh ones in the window left of the cash register. If you cook sausages at home, try them!.

    You really should have got a patent! It's pathetic how they are imitating the first pies ever made in Asia.

    Thank you Headworx.

    You know your source of pies but no sign of the global market leader.

    I'm blessed that I have a great supply of pastry to my door which I can bake with selected fillings and freeze.

    ^Welcome, and good luck with your parole. I take my hat off to anyone who's good with pastry, way too hard for me. The very best of the best is an English guy Paul Hollywood, go to YouTube to see how good this guy is with pies cakes and pastries if you haven't already seen his tv shows.

    The filling in Lady Pies is better (I'm not so keen on the pastry) but the shop has not re-stocked them.
    Same with the Pukka Balti chicken pies. Not being re-stocked. No idea why. It's baffling.

    I am exactly the same... not really that fussed about pies but they are a darn good standby on those days when you are heading out of the door, on the way to work and realise that those chicken thighs you forgot to bring out to defrost ain't happening. Grab a pie from the freezer as well as the chicken thighs anf you know you have dinner tonight and chicken tomorrow night.

    Would you kindly share images of the pies you rely on from time to time ?

    Filling ingredients

    1kg wild boar shoulder, fat trimmed, cut into large pieces
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    2 tbsp olive oil
    175g pancetta or streaky bacon cut into lardons
    225g small shallots, peeled and left whole

    2 bay leaves
    2 sprigs of flat leaf barley
    2 tbsp plain flour
    200ml red wine
    650ml beef stock

    Pastry method

    On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the puff pastry to a 0.5cm/¼in thickness.
    Brush the rim and outside edge of the filled pie dish with beaten egg, then lay the pastry over the top of the dish. Press the edges of the pastry down to reach down the sides of the pie dish, then trim any excess. If desired, use any trimmings to decorate the top of the pie.

    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    Im a fan of the lady pies which i can get here in lao. The aussie pie is my fave. Had there cornish pasty today for lunch and it was shite. Mostly potatoe for the filiing. wasnt particularly cheap either. Disapointing.

    Must agree with you 100% on that BLD, her Pasty's are not good!. I've been to her shop/factory in Phuket and ate one fresh from the oven (not frozen and re-heated) and it was still no good. As you say, it's mostly just potatoe inside...

    David a few of the makers in Pattaya have done Thai green curry pies, some still do and others don't anymore. I know they are very popular in places like Oz where people might want to eat something with a taste that reminds them of their holiday in Thailand but they don't seem to sell well in Thailand where you can get a good green curry anywhere. Makes sense, eat a meat pie if you want one and get a green curry later.

    I haven't had any of the home made pies pimped on this thread, but my freezer always has a few Lady Pies.

    So cutting to the chase, where are all these scrumptious Pattaya pies to be sampled/purchased?

    FFS don't say Simon or Manston or Porkies or London Pies!

    Looks slightly over cooked mate.

    I still only microwave her pies for 4 minutes and let rest for 4 minutes.
