Fredo Pies, Frederickton11

Posted on August 22, 2011 by ChristieRestaurants

On our recent road trip to Lennox Head along the NSW coastline we stopped at Fredo Pies for lunch. You can see the iconic sign with the crocodile on it from quite a distance, and it makes your tummy grumble.

Hubby went straight for the beer beef and chilli pie.

I could not go past the crocodile pie. It’s what they are famous for, after all. Crocodile meat is salty and tastes like a cross between chicken and fish. The texture is more like chicken and it’s quite a strange thing to eat.

I have to admit that I didn’t love it or hate it, but the pastry was good. Nice and flakey and buttery.

Hubby and I are a fan of sausage rolls so we grabbed one of those too. It was very good – chock full of meat and flavoured with fennel seeds.

The lovely lady behind the counter gave Poppy a souvenir bib. So cute! With over 160 varieties of pies available (they rotate seasonally) Fredo Pies is well worth a pit stop.

What’s your favourite type of pie? I quite like stewed rabbit in a pie or the old classic, beef and mushroom.
