Potter’s Pasties & Pies

The Potter’s food truck—look for the British flag—has become popular enough among sidewalk lunch crowds that its owners opened a brick-and-mortar shop near the U of M. Descending into the dark basement kitchen feels rather like trespassing, but those who do so are rewarded with hearty pastry pockets filled with everything from mild chicken and gravy to Thai red curry. The crusts are thick but structurally necessary for portable dining, as there’s no indoor seating, just takeout and delivery.
