Cornish Pasty Co.

The Commercial Center District, near The Strip, contains shops and great restaurants, like Cornish Pasty Co.!  This place specializes in making pasties, which are baked pastries typically with meat and vegetables as the fillings.  They're basically like "British hot pockets," but bigger, more flavorful, and comes in an assortment of fillings.


The bar area:


Happy Hour every day:


 If you look at the menu, there are three categories of pasties - Signature, Vegetarian & Vegan, and Premium.  I counted 37 total pasties on the menu, so for sure you'll find one that'll suit your palate! 

I tried the Cottage Pie- contains seasoned ground beef, pea, carrots, grilled onions, mashed potatoes, and cheddar with a side of red wine gravy.  This was a very hearty meal, definitely something best to eat after a hard day's work or have as a hangover meal - it can go either way!  I was already full eating the first half, but could not resist finishing the other half (the pasty was about the size of my head):


 My husband got Pesto Chicken- marinated chicken breast, mushrooms, artichokes, fresh mozzarella, and pesto with a side of marinara:


Oven Chips- hand cut British style chips, cooked in an oven, with cracked pepper and sea salt, and added with garlic.  These chips were also big and addicting:


I still could not get enough of their food and had to try a dessert.  We got the Shirley Temple's Pudding- a sticky toffee pudding, made with imported British treacle, and served hot with crème angalaise.  To me, it was similar to a chocolate souffle, but drenched with melted chocolate:  


This is the best place to stuff yourself with hearty British food!  Enjoy it with a few drinks while you're at it ;)
