Pasty - Upper Peninsular

#1

Post by Clarkston1 »

I had a UP excursion this summer, visited the Porcupine Mountains, Keweenaw Peninsular, and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
During the trip the best Pasties I had were in Houghton at Amy j’s just north of the bridge..

Am I wrong, anyplace better?

Suomi Bakery in downtown Houghton has the best pasties in my opinion. They also have the best and most authentic Finnish menu in the U.P.....breakfast is awesome.

Suomi Bakery makes pasties with a little bit different crust than most other places....much lighter. They are more like my grandmother used to make (@YooperAho's great Aunt).
Our Finnish grandmothers made pasties for Grandpa Jalmer and Uncle Waino (Jonny's grandfather) as lunch when they worked in the iron mines in the Yoopee. I like the lighter crust better. The picture of the pie is not my Grandmothers but is the closest I could find to an actual picture of what she would serve for dinner. The smaller ones were more like "sandwiches" for lunch.
