A transplanted New Yorker just posted a request on the San Francisco Bay Area board for the"best" Jamaican beef patties like he was used to in NY. A hopeless request, if you ask me, but that raised a couple of questions in my mind, as I have only encountered the rather wretched, seemingly ubiquitous ones served at convenience stores and fast food outlets,
Just where ARE the best Jamaican Beef patties in New York, both from the standpoint of neighborhoods/communities and individual vendors?
Secondly, just what makes a good Beef Patty a good Beef Patty?
Focus on Beef Paties please, not on other delights of Jamaican cuisine, (though if you want tease my tast buds with an aside or two......).
