Jamaican Food: Jamaican Tasty Patties

I LOVE Jamaican patties.

I get them from nearby bakeries around my neighborhood in Brooklyn. They are often less than $2, and they fill me up as if I had a full meal. A Jamaican patty contains various delicious fillings and spices baked inside a flaky shell, often tinted golden yellow with an egg yolk mixture or turmeric. My favorites are beef or salmon, and the spicier the better. Most often, they are eaten with Jamaican coco bread just like a sandwich. This bold and flavorful patty will surely take your taste buds to Jamaica.
