Order this: Beef ragu pie
There’s only one pie available at Baker D Chirico, and for good reason – they’ve nailed it. Tender chunks of slow-cooked beef with celery, mushroom and carrot are packed into a seriously buttery shortcrust pastry. Add a slick of mildly spiced house-made kasoundi and you have your ticket to pie paradise. This noble nibble is sturdy enough to eat with your hands, but it’s well worth sitting down to savour. There are few chairs at their petite St Kilda store, so, it might be best to whisk your prey (plus pastries, sourdough bread and, heck, why not some custard doughnuts?) home to devour.
