Cornish Pasty Company
The Cornish Pasty originates from Cornwall (Southwest England) and can be traced back as far as the 1200ac2s. Mining was once a thriving industry in Cornwall and at that time pasties were baked by the wives and mothers of the tin miners. Pasties were made with a thick crimped edge along one side so the miners could use the crimp as a handle to hold onto while eating. The miners' hands would often be covered in arsenic from the mine, so the miners would discard the handle when they were done. The crusts were never wasted though, as many miners believed that ghosts, or acoeknockersac inhabited the mines, and their leftovers crusts would keep these ghosts content.
I went to for the first time about a week ago with a group of 9 friends, and I havent stopped thinking about it since. I am going back tonight with different friends. I'm that girl who gets the same thing at every restaurant, so as not to be disappointed with the fare.... I cannot wait to try something new here! Tried the Cajun Chicken on my first visit... it was awesome. I have to give a mention to the staff: As a professional with a background in process improvement, I'm a people watcher, especially in a setting like this. We were seated at the counter in Tempe, and watching the staff work around each other was fascinating and impressive. You'd never guess this is what lies behind the facade in this stip mall......
The food is wonderful. The menu is all pasties, lots of varieties of flavor from English to ethnic cusine. The greek salad is excellent to start with, and the desserts are also incredible. They have very nice beer on draft too. Great food at such a reasonable price.
A friend of mine introduced me to this place a couple of years ago, and I have been addicted ever since!
The food is wonderful (shepherd's pie, bangers & mash, rosemary chicken are all highly recomended), portions are large and filling, and the service is great. Cornish is a small rectangular hole in the wall with black and white decor of miners. Great tap selection (cider!), and the desserts look delicious. I say look because I'm always too full to try one.
In addition to dining in, they do take out, and you can either have them bake the pasty for you, or get a partially cooked one and finish it up in your own oven.
All in all, a favorite stop of me and my friends!
On a visit to Arizona, I was introduced to this tiny little eatery. OH MY! Yummy for your tummy. Words can not describe. Pronounced 'Pass-Tee' these handheld pies are a slice of heaven on earth. Just go and try. That's all I can say.
