The Cornish Pasty Co.

960 W. University Drive, #103 Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-894-6261

Location Description:

Hip, railroad-car-size establishment specializing in Cornwall's answer to the potpie, the pasty (pronounced pass-tee). Traditionally, these jumbo turnovers are filled with steak, onion, rutabaga and potato, and are referred to as oggies. The place also has porkies, which are (you guessed it) stuffed with pork, sage, onion, potato and apple; and lamb and mint varieties. But owner Dean Thomas has pulled a Ben & Jerry's on the concept, adding everything from a pesto chicken to chicken tikka masala and a Philly cheese-steak version. Try 'em all, and you're sure to end up an oggie addict.
