Harry's Cafe de Wheels - Pies Tips (21)

Harry's Cafe de Wheels - Pies: Don't miss these famous Hotdogs (and other snacks)

Very (in our eyes) strange combinations of hotdogs with green substances (pea?).

But we tasted the hotdogs and they were GREAT!

It's nice to watch the pictures with famous people on the cafe. It's a very famous cafe!!!

Favorite Dish Hotdogs!!!!! MMMMhhhhhhhhh........

Harry's Cafe de Wheels: A SYDNEY LANDMARK

first opened 60 years ago the Cafe de Wheels serves pies 24 hours a day, we just had a cup of tea, 8am is way too early for pies for us, but we had a great time looking at all the photographs which show the cafe and the famous people who have eaten here

it looks like a fun place to meet and eat, probably not on a very rainy day as it was when we were there

the original Cafe is in Woolloomooloo, we did see another in Darling Harbour

Harry's Cafe de Wheels.Pies.: Harry's Cafe de Wheels

Harry's Cafe de Wheels is one of Sydney's most popular places for a bite to eat. All it is is an outdoor meat pie cart, but it does incredible business and the lines can be very long. It is open 18 hours every day, and is frequented by many celebrities whenever they come to Sydney.

Harry's has been around since the 1930's and has an interesting history, which you can read about on its website. You can also see pictures of some celebs who have eaten there.

Favorite Dish My favourite was the Beef Pie, with mash, peas and gravy. It is the perfect food to please your appetite. You can get a pie with many combinations of toppings, and the website has pictures of them. Harry's also serves hot dogs, but if you don't order a pie, you will waste your trip here.

Harry's Cafe de Wheels.Pies.: A street legend

This place is legendary! In fact, it's almost become a tourist attraction these days. Basically a street stand that has attained its status by always being there for the hungry masses in the wee hours of the morning. The usual fare are hot dogs and pies of all sorts. The food is good and cheap ($5 meal, can't beat that!) - just be weary of sea gulls trying to steal it from you. And it's only open all night on weekends. Weekdays I think it closes around 1 or 2am.

Favorite Dish I had one of the pies, can't remember which one. It wasn't bad at all, fairly filling too. Be sure to grab extra napkins!!

Harry's Cafe de Wheels.Pies.: Pies, pies and more pies (Woolloomoloo)

A Sydney institution. Down in Woolloomoolloo Bay is the kiosk that has remained static for years. If you need proof, look at the b/w photos dotted round the outside walls. And although near the Naval Yards, its had its fair share of rich and famous grace its ketchup bottles. Grab yourself one of the fantastic Aussie national dishes - meat pie. Have it served with mashed potato and mushy peas dolloped on the top. Bung on a sauce and there you have it - a fantastic haute-cuisine, Australian style (yeah, right -:)). Its a must, but if you can't face it, stick to the hotdogs. Stand round the kiosk staring at the photos or go sit on the wooden beam protecting cars from parking in the water of the docks. Not exactly the most stylish of environments, but you should do it once. (plastic knives and napkins provided)

Favorite Dish That pie described above. Its the most expensive on the menu at A$4.

With all the different...

With all the different nationalities in Sydney, you can basically find whatever you want, whenever you want it!! If you happen to be near Kings Cross, take a trip to Harry's Cafe De Wheels. They serve some of the best pies I have ever eaten. You can get all varieties and you can also top your pie with mashed potato, mushy peas and gravy...if you want to. If you are around the Bondi Junction area there is a place called Rocky's pizza place which is also great. They have pizza (duh!) pasta, salads and gelato. Food in Sydney is generally high priced. If you are looking for a budget meal, check out the local pub or RSL club. In some RSL clubs they have a night where you can get all you can eat for around $5.00, you just have to find somewhere that does this. If you are looking for an expensive meal, you know, the ones where the plate is almost empty, places like Glebe and Paddington are for you! The food in Australia is great, so much variety. I am sure anyone visiting Sydney will be pleases with the selection of food. If you are not, there is always McDonalds and Pizza hut (which I think is better than the States anyway!!), Burger King and KFC!

Favorite Dish If you eat at Harrys Cafe De Wheels and you like chicken, try the chicken pie with mash, mushy peas and gravy YUMMMM!!
If you eat at Rockys Pizza Place, try the Warm Chicken Salad.
If you choose to eat at McDonalds or Pizza Hut, get whatever you usually do, chances are it will be better than what you are used to anyways!!
