Cornish Pasty Co.

Show your friends how culturally enlightened you are with your thorough knowledge of this British street snack. Cornish Pasty (pronounced “past-ee”) purveys savory pastries filled with meat like lamb, pork, chicken and bacon and veggies like potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans and celery.

The restaurant, which has four Valley locations, also offers vegan and vegetarian pasties packed with fake chicken and beef and loaded with cheese and veggies. Come for the Cornish comfort food with a southwestern twist and stay for a round of local brews, Cornish car bombs or piquant Bloody Marys.
