I've been meaning to visit the Tuck Shop in Alphabet City (downtown Manhattan). But I never could make the time. Finally they opened up a sister shop a few blocks from my office and I ran over there. The Tuck Shop serves down home Australian grub. Specifically meat pies. Sort of like American pot pies. They have a Thai Chicken Pie(which I got), a lamb pie, a veggie pie and a few others I forget. They also serve Australian beer and candy bars. I purchased the Thai Chicken and boy was it hot! But I love spicy so I would get it again. Now I've tried food from practically all the places I want to visit abroad, England, Ireland, Australia and all there is left is Scotland. This is the definition of what a tuck shop is and here is a recipe for an Australian meat pie if you want to make your own. It's from the Eight Mile Creek restaurant in Manhattan. They serve more upscale Australian dishes. Niel took me there a few years ago for a birthday.
