Homemade pasties at Dylan's

Joan Kureczka | Apr 22, 2004 12:30 AM

Dylan's is a neighborhood, Welsh bar at Folsum and 19th. Very friendly local, that like Edinburgh Castle provides some cultural stuff tied to Wales (a Dylan Thomas celebration and St. David's Day among others). Nothing fancy, just a nice local.

However, we found that one of the bartenders, Danielle, supplies the place with homemade pasties when she can get commercial quantities of real (i.e. butter only, now preservatives) puff pastry.

We tried the mince beef and the chicken curry. The beef was basic although well seasoned and with a few peas and fresh carrots. The chicken curry was a real winner though, nicely spicey with large chunks of chicken thigh, carrots, a small amount of potato, etc.). Having only a microwave (a minus) to warm them in, Danielle was pretty careful not to heat so much to ruin the integrity of the excellent pastry.

She also makes a couple of vegetarian pies, which were sold out -- cheese and potato and cheese and onion.

Prices are $4 - 4.75 for a large pasty.
