DaytonDining Scoop: Cheeky Meat Pies is going to move from the 2nd Street Market to the concession areas at RiverScape MetroPark. Their contract was just approved by the board this morning. They’ll be open more days of the week and during festivals, programs and other events.
No details yet on exact hours and menus, but we’ll get that to you soon! In honor of the news, here’s a chance to revisit a Food Adventure with Cheeky Meat Pies!
Here is a little known secret for you fellow Dayton Food Adventurers. It is a place where you can get some authentic Meat Pies like the ones from New Zealand. They are a vendor at Dayton’s 2nd Street Market and the company is called Cheeky Meat Pies. They have some incredible items made from scratch! The owner of the Dayton business is a true “Kiwi,” which is slang for a native New Zealander.
The big attraction is, of course, their meat pies. You hold them and eat them like a sandwich. Each meat pie features a flaky crust, and depending on the type of pie, the fillings vary. We recommend the “Distinguished Darby” or the “Tandoori Chook” pies to fellow Food Adventurers. The Darby is filled ground beef cooked in an onion gravy, mixed with Monterey Jack cheese. It has a melt in your mouth feeling when you taste it. The Tandoori is a chopped chicken breast and potato pie with a slightly spicy Tandoori sauce. Indian flavors are popular “Down Under,” and Cheeky Meat Pies‘ twist on this pie is perfection. They also feature Veggie Pies and Breakfast Pies! Popular combos are served with a side of Roasted Kumura (sweet potato) fries. For a full menu of their meat pie offerings click HERE.
The next time you visit Dayton’s 2nd Street Market, make sure you grab one of these goodies to go. The owner is very friendly, and greeted us with his memorable accent. Don’t miss this “street food” taste of New Zealand, GET CHEEKY WITH IT !
