One day....I had a craving for some curry beef Jamaican patties sitting by my computer...decided to do a google search and up popped this place of which I never heard of. Several days later I called up a buddy of mine who's originally from the Caribbean...I said we should checkout this place.
We got there around 4ish. Found out it wasn't a restaurant per say but a take out joint as there are no chairs or tables..just a counter and a soda pop machine BUT you can smell it permeating outside the door. There is no menu except a chalk board with 6 types of patties and 2 roti selections. I decided on a pair of curry beef ones ($1.90 each excluding tax). My buddy decided on the 1 chicken patty ($2.20), 1 hot beef version ($1.90) and chicken roti ($7.50) to boot. The verdict....OMG!!! The pastry was super flaky and the filling was HOT!! You can actually see beef in it (no fillers) and taste the spicy aroma!! My buddy said he could see actual chicken pieces and chickpeas in his patty....he was standing eating it like he as pipe-dreaming..no pun intended. Like the other reviewer...hands down the best patties in town!! I asked ta buds about the chicken roti ( brought home later)...he said excellent as well.
Just a reminder, they only take cash or cheque and been around for 35 years!! I decided to grab a further frozen 12 pack of the same for $18 bucks. All in all, a little shop specializing in two areas and doing a fantastic job as I see cars making pit-stops every 3 to 5 minutes.
Decided to try this shop since my son loves jamaican beef patties. I ordered the bulk frozen bags so he can cook them in our own oven at home. Ordered the hot beef, curry chicken and a pizza. I have had better tasting patties/crust but price wise a good value.
Been going here for as long as I can remember. Its just a simple take-out shop with incredible food. You know you're onto something when a shop can survive by serving just one item. Incredibly popular with locals but little known outside of the west end it seems. Generous fillings with an incredibly flaky exterior. I can't think of a better snack. Spinach and cheese is a personal favourite but they're all amazing!
