Warm, flaky, and filling are just three words to describe the perfect pasty. The popular Upper Peninsula pie has made its way down to Metro Detroit and has become a staple in the area. Whether you’re in the mood for a meat, vegetable, or chicken pasty, here are some local places you can enjoy the Upper Peninsula favorite.
You’ll probably do best not to look at all of Barb’s pasty offerings on an empty stomach. The Clawson restaurant features freshly made pasties crafted from an original Copper Country recipe, and you can enjoy them hot, cold, or frozen to save for later. Don’t forget about the second part of their name as their pizzas are just as popular!
The Plymouth based U.P. Pasties Co. prides itself on bringing the northern treat down to the southeast region. Their $8 pasties include a top sirloin beef, chicken breast, or vegan option all served with potato, carrot, and rutabaga. You can also enjoy pasty mini bites along with frozen pasties.
Featuring authentic U.P. pasties and polish offerings, Calumet Pasty Company in Roseville has been a staple in the community for over 40 years. Featuring an authentic recipe, their menu includes chicken and meat pasties which you can get with gravy. Be sure to check out their full menu to see all of their delicious Polish dinners!
The Pasty Shop in Southgate offers up, you guessed it, pasties, and some pretty good ones too. The small shop features regular beef, chicken, and a carrot and rutabaga pasties all with the option of adding more extras such as broccoli, potatoes, and cauliflower. Be sure to follow the family operated store on Facebook for updates on products and hours of operation.
The aptly titled Superior Pasties has been providing Livonia residents with superior pasties for the better part of 27 years. Featuring locally sourced ingredients and a homemade recipe, their wide ranging pasties are some of the best around. From beef, to broccoli and cheese, to a chicken fajita pasty, you can’t go wrong at Superior Pasties!
