cornish pasties & spanakopita on the NW side? + tips

Does anyone know of sources for the meat pie and the spinach pastry.

Nikko's, a Greek joint at Diversey and Elston, had great spanakopita, before it changed hands and became Niko's, yet another gyros/burger grill. Charcoal Delights (good burgers, cooked to order over charcoal), Foster and Kedzie, had good spinach pies. but stopped serving them. The old Nablus, a Middle-Eastern place at Lawrence and Kedzie, also had great spinach pies, but they're no longer on the menu.

I'm hungry.

In return:

For smoked and freshly fried to order seafood: Hagen's, on Montrose just west of Central. Great shrimp, smelts, catfish, and the best fried fish sandwich I've ever had. They'll also smoke the fish that you catch.

Suzy's, a little 24-hour joint on Montrose just west of Elston. Dozens of milkshakes, imaginative items (Cup o' Taco), and home of the additictive Confused Chicken ("one-foot of good eatin'"): chicken breast strips, onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, cheese, marinara sauce, on a crusty French roll.
