Let’s Go Eudlo

Tony Kelly’s quest to create amazing dining experiences continues with the opening of his tenth venue, Eudlo General Store. Deb Caruso uncovers their secret ingredient. 

Fresh off the back of opening Piggyback in Palmwoods, leading Sunshine Coast restaurateur and chef Tony Kelly is on a mission to create the Sunshine Coast’s best pies and to breathe new life into a much-loved Eudlo icon.

The Tony Kelly Restaurant Group have redefined Asian street food with the phenomenal Riceboi in Mooloolaba; Giddy Geisha in the Maroochydore CBD and now Piggyback in Palmwoods.

But it’s the humble Australian meat pie that Tony has set his attention to as the next big attraction in the region. He believes they have refined the recipe for the perfect pie which will be available exclusively at his latest venture, the refurbished Eudlo General Store. 

Mr Kelly along with hospitality industry stalwart Luke Stringer are the team behind the recently redeveloped Eudlo General Store which has serviced the local community since 1925.

“What I work on with my hospitality ventures is to ensure they are all famous for at least one thing, for example at Rice Boi it’s curry and beer, Market Bistro is famous for its wine as well as service and bistro style food and after discovering the recipe for the ‘Holy Grail’ of pies, I am sure the Eudlo General Store will be famous for great coffee and mastering the simplicity of beautiful house made pies,” say Tony. 

The perfect pie is big business – many Australians have spent quality time researching the topic in all its forms from pie floaters to shepherd’s pie, but the Kelly gang have put in the hard yards too and come up trumps. 

“We have been working on perfecting the pastry for the pies for quite a while and I really believe it’s the best pie I have ever tasted. The base has a nice texture and crunch and the top is flaky like a croissant while the inside will be filled with delicious sticky beef cheeks slow cooked in red wine,” he boasts. “We’ll also have other amazing pies including chicken, leek and baby peas as well as lamb and rosemary which all be available in traditional as well as family size to take away.”

Sold Tony, you had me at sticky beef cheeks. 

There are big plans for this Eudlo icon – the next stage of redevelopment will include a curated outdoor dining area featuring a large rotisserie and woodfired pizza oven.

“Over the years, the Eudlo General Store has been an essential meeting place for people to catch up, buy some essentials, enjoy a bite to eat or even get married out the back,” Tony said. 

“We really feel we’ve done the building and its heritage justice and we can’t wait for the local community to enjoy what we have to offer.”

Let’s go Eudlo! We can’t wait to step into the ever changing and always exciting world of breakfast, lunch, pies and parties at the Eudlo General Store.
