Here are the best Jamaican patties in Toronto.
Following a brief closure, this Brockton Village spot is back making the patties (and doubles, jerk chicken, oxtail, etc.) the community loves. Light and nicely packed, each type — mild and spicy beef, chicken and veggie — is delicious as is, or sandwiched in pillowy coco bread buns.
With its royal moniker and habit-forming snacks, it's no wonder this Scarborough spot ranks among the city's patty nobility. Even if you can't visit the Progress Avenue location, you can find this bakery's beef, chicken and veggie patties at concession stands and variety stores around the city.
Head to the Junction's When the Pig Came Home Delicatessen for hand-made patties. A selection of flavours includes beef, jerk chicken and curry goat along with the must-try ackee and salt fish, and aptly-named "Juicy" — a patty barely able to contain its cheddar, creamy coleslaw, and green onion innards.
A roster of handmade halal patties populate the menu at this takeout place in Scarborough. Devour them as is or as part of a sandwich — layered on coco bread with plantain, veg and mayo — then finish off with ice cream in a range of tropical flavours.
Thin, light crust holds a considerable amount of seasoned filling in the patties sold at this Scarborough takeout spot. Bring cash (there's no ATM on site) and buy enough beef, veg, and curried chicken pastries to savour now and in the future.
