Pie war heats up the competition
WARDELL has become a bit of a hot spot to get a hot pie these days with some tasty fare on offer.
While some readers have described it as a 'pie war', others have suggested the crusty competition is a chance to bring pie-lovers to the small hamlet on the Richmond River to experience the gourmet delicacies available to locals and travellers alike.
First up is the Wardell Pie Shop in Richmond St, run by the Lismore Pie Cart man himself, Larry Endres.
With a range of flavours including spinach and fetta, chicken satay, and duck and mushroom, customers can eat in or take a short walk to the riverfront and enjoy them there.
Not to be outdone Pot Belly Pies has recently taken up residence at the BP Wardell on the Pacific Hwy.
Run by Phillip and Ann Read, they are selling this increasingly popular range of pies to passers-by.
Matt Brown of Modanville and Martin Burt of Keith Hall were happily munching on their lamb, rosemary and mint pies while family member Nick Burt of Newcastle had a chunky steak pie when the Rivertown Times caught up with them.
"I give (Pot Belly Pies) a solid eight out of 10," Mr Brown said.
"They are at least a pie and a half."
