SYDNEY, Feb. 25 (Xinhua) -- An Australian meat pie is a hand-sized pie containing diced or minced meat and gravy, sometimes with onion, mushrooms or cheese, and often consumed as a takeaway snack.

The meat pie is considered iconic in Australia. It was described by former New South Wales Premier Bob Carr in 2003 as Australia's "national dish".

In some shops, meat pies are topped with adorable personalized facial expressions. It can not only bring a smile to your face, but also let you know what filling or flavor the pie has.
