Mayor Bill Ludwig would throw a pie at Bully editor's face
ROCKHAMPTON could soon swap its reputation as the beef capital for one as the chunky steak pie capital.
The chunky steak pie has topped the list of favourites at the local Pie Face Rockhampton store.
And Rockhampton man Dion Brittingham is one of many fans of the humble pie. The apprentice refrigeration mechanic said his favourite was the steak and cheese.
"They're just different, I work in here so I come here a few times a week," Dion said yesterday.
The simple chicken and mushroom pie came in a close second.
Located in Stockland, Pie Face Rockhampton franchise owner Mohini Long said business had been going well since their opening in May last year.
"We know Rockhampton residents love our chunky steak and chicken and mushroom pies, but we're keen to see what other flavours tickle their tastebuds too," Mohini said.
"Australia is such a multi-cultural country and we want to regularly introduce interesting new flavours."
Kicking off this month with two Mexican-inspired pie flavours - spicy chicken and corn and beef chilli con carne, the new pies are part of the stores "World of Pies", which will see new pie flavours inspired by different countries launch in store every two months.
The spicy chicken and corn and beef chilli con carne pies will be available until mid-August.

- Bill Byrne, Rockhampton MP: Robert Schwarten. He's the most robust person I know who would be able to take that.
