I can't believe Jock Wrights on York Rd hasn't been nominated for the best pastie title! :punish:

Unfortunately, no it is long gone. But his pasties were the best.

A slight deviation from pasties is something you donít see in many chippys in Belfast , a batter burger , as the name suggests itís a burger dipped in batter , some chippys do a thing called a steakette which they claim is the same thing but itís not the same as a proper burger dipped in batter that you get in the North Antrim area  :nyam:

The BEST Pastie was made by Commander Nelson, who owned The Trafalgar in Bloomfield Avenue, East Belfast. O0 O0

Mashed chips, bread crumbs, onion, herbs and spices, and   ???  ----  and none of that " Pink Slime " meat, that went into the inferior Pasties.

Pasties were always called Pasties, even in the early 50's

Every body loves a good pastie supper. For me the best were from "The Glen" at the top of the Oldpark Road aka "Greasy Fred's". Don't know why it got that name because his stuff was great. Need to be careful what I say here though, cos I know that Fred's daughter Robina posts on here.

have to agree with this one. 

I remember when I was in the Model we used to go there for a pastie bap and a small chip at lunch time.  small chip in those days were 10p and if I remember right a pastie bap was 12p.  oooh the good old days

I even remember when I was a wee bit older and just had a push bike whistling up the Oldpark Road to get a paste supper on a Friday night after I finished work "down the yard".
