And we don't mean pizza! Even though he is still an American and not yet legally Australian, Xavi celebrated his first Australia Day in style by sampling a meat pie (with ketchup) and a lemon curd tart at Pie Face on Broadway. Monica read about Pie Face in the Dining section of the Times last Wednesday, and it seems to be doing a roaring trade. We will be back again, although it is quite a schlep from where we live. According to Kate, Pie Face is at Westfield Bondi Junction, and is not "Bondi Beach's favorite cafe", as they are promoting it here. But the pies and other products were pretty good, though a bit pricey: $5.95 + tax for a plain pie (but the ketchup was free). From there it is just a couple of blocks to MoMA, so Xavi had his first visit to an art gallery as well. What an afternoon! He seemed to like the art gallery and took more than half an hour to get bored.

Happy Australia Day; I'll give the pie 8/10
