i'm looking for the best homemade jamaican meat patties in brooklyn (or anywhere in NYC-area, if highly recommended).
every place that i seem to go to has the same generic yellow pastry with boring meat filling inside.
down in gainesville, florida (near the University of Florida campus) there is the most amazing jamaican meat patty restaurant, called CARRIBEAN SPICE.
they serve the BEST patties that i have ever sampled anywhere. the most interesting and tastey thing about their patties is that instead of making them with the usual boring yellow pastry, they use super-buttery delicious cocoa bread, and they put the meat & cheese filling inside of the cocoa bread.
these things are easily in the top 10 most delicious foods which i have ever tried anywhere in the world.
the cocoa bread was buttery and delicious, almost croissant-like, but not flaky like a croissant.
i would LOVE more than anything to find a patty in brooklyn (or NYC) which compares to the magical goodness which is CARRIBEAN SPICE.
