Grab a pasty, the iconic dish of Michgian's Upper Peninsula, and you've got a pretty good idea what to expect - beef (maybe chicken) in a pastry with root vegetables like potato, rutabaga, carrots and onion. Expect something different at Joe's in Ironwood.
Heading north to the Upper Peninsula is a summertime tradition for anyone from West Michigan. It's a long trip and all that time on the road can work up an appetite. Make your next road trip to the U.P. a delicious one with our map of places to stop for a pasty along the way.
