Pasties

Unread post by WalterBoyd »

I know they aren't healthy for you, but now and again it has to be done. Millions agree judging by the sales of them.

Anyway, as I ate a tasteless, awful Gregg's pasty earlier, when I should be thinking " This is so unhealthy, eat some salad and go for a long walk " , I was instead thinking, there must be better tasting pasties available locally.

I think a 'medium ' size, Jenkins cornerd beef pasty has the edge over Greggs corned beef, but still the guilt of eating is not won over due to the average bland taste.

Is there a pasty for sale in Swansea area that is actually tasty and you can forgive yourself for eating it.

I usually go for corned beef, Cornish considered. Cheese too sickly.

Thanks in advance for your help and sensible replies.

Personally I find Mavis Davies pasties absolutely banging! Don't like their pies, but the pasties are full of taste.

Used to love the pasties from the garage at Knelston. The day was never the same if I didn't have one while passing it.

For a National Standard I think West Cornwall large traditional is my go to pastie. Many's the Friday night I've bumbled drunkenly into London Bridge or Victoria station after a work night out and with auto pilot on bought one for the journey home. Sometimes woke up at my stop covered in pastry flakes but at least I had noone sitting by me.

Will read this thread with interest as I don't have a clue about local Swansea pasties, but I'm back for a few days from later today. Have to go to the market in the week anyway

Macphersons on Oxford Street were undoubtedly the best pasties i have ever tasted.

Sweetman's had the best corned beef pasties. Sadly they demised a few years back. But I can taste the rosemary they added even now😋

Nothing wrong with a Gregg’s pasty. Although they call them “corned beef bakes” for some reason. Probably pee cee gone mad or something.

What abysmal tea did your missus, sorry missis, cook that was that awful. How can a tea become abysmal , what went wrong?

Having a great pastie as a back up is always a good option. I am searching for the right one. I will try a Mavis Davis one next week.

I am not going to start a pasty or pastie thread as it may have been done before.

Which is it ?
