I (still) feel like a pie

Self-explanatory, but I saw this article about an Aussie pie-maker in Siem Reap, and I was wondering if we have any pie tasters up there, before I get on a bus ?
Tbh, no I won't really get on a bus, but this has me started on the pie trail again. :2girlsit8:

Siem Reap is a multicultural foodie’s paradise with restaurants and cafes flogging cuisine from almost everywhere – except Australia.

Which is a bloody disgrace.*

To make matters worse, Siem Reap until recently harboured the now-shut-down New Zealand Bakery and Café, which promoted the virtue of New Zealand meat pies as opposed to the superior Aussie meat pie**.

Many Australians regard New Zealand as small inconsequential neighbour with a cricket team that now and then manages to beat the Australian cricket team***, so to be confronted in an Aussie-cafe-devoid Siem Reap with a New Zealand venue mostly patronised by Kiwi backpackers laying claim to the meat pie and talking about New Zealand beating Australia in cricket again was simply another bloody disgrace.
Etc.

In NZ pies are mostly made by Cambodians and Vietnamese bakers, but try finding a pie made by Cambodians here that is anything but a below average effort and wouldn't rate in NZ as anything but dog food.

In a foodie paradise, I would not expect a large selection of Australian meat pie...Were there a large selection of meat pie, said location would probably not qualify as a foodie paradise.

Anchor Moy,

That's strange... you don't look like a pie.
:hattip:
