New Zealand Pie Shop in Irkutsk!!September 19 in Russia ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C
Yes that is correct Random Russia keeps on giving!!
Whilst searching for the way from the bus station to the hostel K spotted the New Zealand pie shop on google maps.
Despite carrying our backpacks we decided we would go out of our way to pay it a visit.
What a random find as the photos show!!!
Luckily the pies were only $2.40 because my beef one was pretty average although K loved her apple and cinnamon.
On questioning the Russian counter girl told us that the owner was Russian but had visited NZ and then came back and set up this pie shop of which it looks like a chain of at least 3 shops according to the brochure.
K was v v happy with her pie.... meanwhile Vanessa’s Cafe In Hampden has nothing to worry about!!!Read more
