British-born Neil Gomme wanted to bring a taste of his home country to Springfield, MO. So, he teamed up with his sister-in-law, Springfield native Carrie Mitchell. Together, they formed London Calling Pasty Company. That’s “pasty” pronounced like “nasty,” by the way, although the dish is anything but. These meat pies, originally made by Cornish miners in the 1800s, are now a staple across the United Kingdom and Europe in general. Think of them as an English empanada. Intrigued? Swing by this food truck and give ‘em a try.
A pasty is, at its core, a buttery, flaky shell of pie crust stuffed with delicious ingredients. Traditionally, they come filled with a mix of steak, onion, potato, and rutabaga. If you want to sample the tried-and-true variety, order the “Oggie.” However, London Calling has plenty of innovative takes on this Cornish classic. These pies come stuffed with everything from herb-seasoned sausage to chicken tikka masala to smoky bacon. While pasties are the main attraction here, this truck’s no one trick pony. You can also try some traditional British dishes like shepherd’s pie and sausage rolls. If you’re looking for a hearty meal on wheels, swing by London Calling Pasty Company and sample the fare. Even better? Book ‘em for your next event. You won’t regret it.
