Back when the English pasty (pronounced "pass-tea") was first invented, its handheld size was a necessity. Cornish tin miners easily carried the portable pasties with them to the job and, given the amount of meat and veggies that can be stuffed into the small package, a single pasty was enough to fuel them all day. The Pure Pasty in Vienna offers these same flaky, filling pasties courtesy of English owner Mike Burgess.
Guests from the U.K. say that these pasties are the real deal, even better than the ones you'll find at shops across the pond. Burgess rotates different varieties of pasties each day, but you can always expect to see some standards like the traditional grass-fed beef pasty and the veggie-packed pasty, which features a different vegetable each month. You can grab a pasty and enjoy it right in the shop, or stock up on a few frozen pasties to take home and bake later. The Pure Pasty also specializes in savory pies and sausage rolls.
