Awesome Aussie Meat Pie – Tuck Shop is for people who are craving Aussie Meat Pies when they can't physically make it across the continent. I really like them because they are meaty, fluffy and awesome with ketchup!
They also serve Aussie beers in bottles so I always see a few Australians hanging out in the tiny shop.
This is also a great after-bar/club eatery. What is not to like for hot fresh out-of-the-oven pies at 3AM in the morning!
Even better than what you get in australia – The pies and sausage rolls are even better than you get in Australia, and then you try the Vanilla Slice...it is amazing..
A simple East Village eatery replete with Aussie charm – The short menu at this tiny, no-frills restaurant stars Aussie specialties like pork sausage rolls and meat pies that come stuffed with your choice of beef, “chook” (chicken) or veggies. Order one with a side of crispy sautéed Brussels sprouts, or upside-down in a puddle of thick pea soup, and top off your meal with a vanilla slice (a traditional down under dessert that consists of frosted caked with layers of cream). The space--dotted with kitsch like a 40-ounce can of Foster's beer, koala pictures and boomerangs--is reminiscent of a beachside surf shack. Like its owner, many of Tuck Shop’s patrons hail from Australia, but New Yorkers should feel right at home here, too.
Awesome! – I love this place. I went there first to get lamingtons which were awesome and we back with an friend and had the steak and mushroom pie and it was very good! Also friendly service and a great little spot.
Way to go Tuck Shop – This a very cute counter service restaurant with friendly employees. Note, theres seating for only a handful of people on stools. I went in a while ago for my first chook sanger (Australian chicken sandwich) and found it tasteless, I dont know if thats how its meant to be. But I was so glad I went back and got a sausage roll. It was absolutely amazing. Its a rare treat when a food really stands out like that. Go get one. Also note, if you're American and have never had vegemite before, you probably shouldnt. It is great that they have Australian beers though.
Sausage Rolls!!!! – I'm a Brit, but I love this Aussie establishment.
Great rolls, pies, salad and the blokes behind the counter are really friendly.
I personaly like to sit outside on the bench and share the grub with my hound.
You ripper! – Been several times now and the pies just keep getting better and better. If you've never had a meat pie before this is great example of an Aussie favourite, for those missing a dogs eye and dead horse - one of these pies will send you home. Thanks for making them, and for the friendly atmosphere.
Try it and you'll be hooked – I'm not a homesick aussie, but fell in love with the world's best comfort food on a trip to melbourne. The Tuck Shop is classic australiana - and the best fun I've had in ages. The experience is great, but it's the pies that make this place what it is. And no idea if the concept of sausage rolls exists in New York - but it does now. Great value, friendly service and tucker to die for.
Fast-food meat pies from Down Under. – In Short
A corrugated metal ceiling and mounted shark give the no-frills interior the feel of a run-down seaside surf shack. Patrons--many of them homesick Aussies--listen to live radio streamed in from Down Under--while waiting for their "tuckers." The pies come stuffed with a soupy mixture of ground beef, chicken or vegetables. Also available are rolls filled with pork and sage or vegetables and a vegemite sandwich. Sweets include a vanilla slice, custard tart and sticky date pudding.
