M (mezzanine) is sometimes said to be the 1st floor. Some elevators indicate G M 2. I've never seen G M 1. G can sometimes be represented by an L (lobby). Most Chinese buildings skip 4, meaning 5 is really 4. Many western buildings skip 13 meaning 14 is 13. No porky pies here. :shock: :laugh: Pete :cheers:

I found out quite by chance this afternoon that in Thailish, "porcupine" is pronounced "porkypie". So beware as what you get for supper may not be what you think. :shock: :alien: Pete :cheers:

You do know that these things are made in Phuket? I buy the chicken or mince sometimes, but they are expensive at 120 Baht. The smaller pork pie is 100 Baht, but I have not tried the one I bought yesterday yet.

No I didn't know they were made in Phuket, but I doubted they were genuinely from Australia. When I said 'aussie' brand I was really referring to the 'aussie pie' logo they use, which is how I refer to them. I have bought a steak pie from them that was okay, so that was my one and only previous experience with them.

But the pork pie I had was far from good, it was pretty tasteless and even Colemans couldn't come to the rescue. Nor did the pastry case seem classic pork pie to me and I threw half of it away. A failed experiment, IMO. But it would be interesting to get a 2nd opinion.

Well, YUK! I only bought the horrible thing because of this thread. I defrosted it overnight, plus out of the fridge a couple of hours before heating it up. Used the turbo oven at 200 degrees C for 15 minutes, despite the instructions stating 10 minutes. The crust on the pastry looked good, but when I opened it up a watery mess oozed out! Tasteless crap!

Just wondering if the thing had been defrosted during shipment? All of the other types that I have had have been good. Usually cook them the same way, except about 25 minutes as they are a lot bigger. :(

To be honest, I don't get this thing about eating pork pies hot, as an important ingredient is jelly, that's probably the watery mess that oozed out! Mind you, I wouldn't recommend eating that particular pork pie cold either.

I think it is definitely a Northern thing, and the liquid jelly mixes very well with the mushy peas. However, I love my pork pies chilled as well. I tend to eat the lid, and then send my tongue in hunting the jelly. :munch:
