Pie-Not is an Australian restaurant in Costa Mesa that offers authentic Aussie meat pies: freshly baked, kept warm under heat lamps in a display case, and ready for takeout. There are a dozen different kinds here, each titled to make you grin. Most are variations on a ground beef-filled base-model pie called “Dog’s Eye.” When peas and carrots are added, with mashed potatos sealing the top, a Dog’s Eye becomes a “Drover,” a concoction that’s eats exactly like a shepherd’s pie. The “Shroomin’” is a Dog’s Eye with mushrooms in it. And when Cheddar and bacon bits are involved, it becomes “That’ll Do Pig.” But if any Aussie ex-pats have any doubt Pie-Not is actually Australian, there’s this: It offers lamingtons, a confection that resembles a brownie crossed with a Hostress Sno Ball, but is simply a square of soft sponge cake that has been encased in a slightly crunchy, fudge-like shell of chocolate icing, then covered in a furry coat of desiccated coconut.
