Ferg Baker is right next door to its more famous sibling, Ferg Burger. We were looking for a quick, reasonably-priced, and above all, delicious, lunch. The line of people waiting for a table at Ferg Burger was daunting; in contrast, Ferg Baker had no line. In fact, we were a little hesitant due to the lack of patronage but decided to give it a try. We picked up a venison and mushroom pie, and a chicken and mushroom pie. As there's no seating at Ferg Baker, we took our pies to a quiet little park (corner of Camp and Ballarat) and sat down to try our purchases.
A stunned and reverent 15 minutes later, we knew we'd found dinner and perhaps even the next day's lunch. Before we returned to our hotel, we dropped by Ferg Baker again and picked up a steak and stout pie, a vegetable pie, and a blueberry pie for dessert. Despite our burning them slightly in the reheating process, the pies still tasted heavenly. Our only regret? Not going back the next day to pick up lunch before leaving Queenstown. Ferg Baker's apple pie that we left untasted may be one of the biggest regrets of our trip.
