What are pasties?
A pasty is a delicious little pocket of amazingness that originated in England quite some time ago. It involved a folded, flaky pasty “case” with any number of (usually savory or salty, but sometimes sweet) fillings – veggies and seasoned meat are popular pasty fillings. Typically, they don’t skimp on the filling, often weighing two pounds or more! The tasty morsels were first cooked up in Cornwall, Southwest England, and quickly became quite popular – which they still are!
What are the top-rated Butte, Montana pasty shops?
You know, for a small town, Butte, Montana sure does have a bunch of places where you can get top-notch tasty pasties (and for super tasty prices, too). Check out Nancy’s Pasty Shop and Catering, which has absolute rave reviews, many of which specifically name the pasties at Nancy’s the “best ever”. They are the perfect balance of flaky, crisp, soft, and delicious, and we think you’ll crave these ones from here on out! Then, there’s Joe’s Pasty Shop, also in Butte, which is known for getting a little creative with its pasty delights. Try yours smothered in chili – you will NOT regret it for even a moment!
Where are the greatest pasty shops in Montana?
Excellent pasties extend well past the town of Butte! In Hamilton, Montana, you’ll find the legendary Mineshaft Pasty Company, which is one of the top-rated restaurants in Montana for a reason - you’ll learn why as soon as you taste just about anything on the menu.
