The Official Pasty Capital of Arizona with tofu "chicken"

A pasty (pronounced "pass-tee") is a large pastry turnover (which has its roots in Cornwall, England, dating back to the 1200's), has delectable fillings inside. And fortunately, for us, The Cornish Pasty Co. had the foresight to have an entire section of its menu devoted to vegetarian selections. (Though for vegans, you must call ahead one hour prior to pick up or eat in, so they can specially prepare your vegan order with ingredients of your choosing.)

Traditional Pasties are filled with a concentrated protein ingredient (tofu for us), potatoes, onions, and rutabaga. And the menu here reflects just that:
1)Veggie Pesto Chicken (Tofu Chicken, Artichoke, Mushroom, Mozzarella. Served with Marinara $6.00)
2)The Greek (Spinach, Fresh Mozzarella, Feta, Sun-dried Tomato, Kalamata Olive, Artichoke, Garlic. Served with Tahini or Tzatziki $5.50)
3)Veggie Tikka Masala (Potato, Veggie Chicken (Quorn©), Tikka Masala Sauce $6.00)
4)Veggie Meatball (Mini Veggie Meatballs, Mozzarella. Served with Marinara $5.00)
5)Cheese And Onion (Onion, Cheddar, Potato, Rutabaga. Served with Marinara $4.50)
6)Veggie Oggie (Portobello Mushroom, Artichoke, Potato. Served with Marinara $5.50)

There's also a garden salad with tofu "chicken" and a Greek salad, also with tofu "chicken."

For something truly unique, try The Cornish Pasty Co. I think you'll like it!

I love this place! They generally have a couple vegan pasty flavors each day, so ask your server. There were a few times they ran out, though (even when I walked in to inquire, then came back an hour later to eat at 4pm - not a busy time).

They have a kind of dark, young, hipster atmosphere with wine and beer options. The vegan Vindaloo is very spicy - good, but spicy! I love the vegan Greek.

I have gone to the Cornish Pasty Company for years and the pasties are always excellent. Order ahead of time for vegan pasties. Generally I call 2 hours ahead of time for takeout and I end up waiting an extra 1/2 hour. An awesome option for vegans is to build your own pasty adding in different vegetables and herbs. Or a tried and true favorite, the Balsamic Portabello without mozzarella. Eat them fast though before they get soggy!
