Eating Across Vienna: Pure Pasty Wins Week 1
Restaurant's Cottage Pies earn readers nod for Vienna's "best dish" of the week in new feature
Pure Pasty Co.'s Cottage Pies was named Vienna's "best dish" of the week by readers who voted in "Eating Across Vienna's" first weekly poll.
Pure Pasty Owner Mike Burgess, who originally hails from the historic English market town of Nantwich, has taken the traditional food of Cornish miners and built upon it at his shop, introducing pasties (pronounced “past-ees”) with Indian and fusion ingredients, vegetarian options and special seasonal treats like pork and apples. The shop also offers soups, salads and the quintessential British sausage roll.
His dish took 62 percent of the vote in this week's poll.
Here are the full results (listed with vote percentages):
- Cottage Pie at Pure Pasty Co.: 62 percent
- Pad Thai at Sweet Ginger: 10 percent
- Chirashi at Yama Restaurant: "0" percent (2 votes)
- Chicken and Waffles at Maple Avenue Restaurant: 25 percent
- Mussels Casino at Maplewood Grill: "0" percent (2 votes)
