At Pacific Paradise on the Sunshine Coast I came across a bakery called Dough Fusion. They had quite a good selection of pies, so I tried their chunky steak which apparently was one of the best in Australia in 2008.
They also had a hamburger pie, called a Dough Fusion Royale, on the menu. I was intrigued, so I tried one.
The pie filling was basically a hamburger pattie with sauce and maybe some pickles in a pie. An interesting concept, but I think it could be done better. The pattie itself wasn’t fantastic, more like sausage roll filling than hamburger meat, and probably as a result of being cooked in pastry, it was a bit soggy. Overall, not a bad pie. I might try another one sometime.
