The Best Jamaican Patties in Toronto
The best Jamaican patties in Toronto continue to bring Caribbean cuisine to the forefront of city eats with the ultimate handheld snack. These flaky, turmeric-stained pastries come stuffed with savoury fillings ranging from beef to jerk pork, served Scotch Bonnet-hot and paired with coco bread.
Here are the best Jamaican patties in Toronto.
The Chong family ran a bakery in Jamaica for years before immigrating to Canada. In 1981 they set up shop in Kensington Market before heading to Scarborough to pursue wholesale. They still stock Golden Patty on Baldwin Street but have been slinging their famous patties from their shop on Progress Ave. ever since.
This famous patty purveyor has been fuelling the city with rectangular beef patties since 1970. Subway stations like Bathurst, Islington and Warden may be this wholesaler’s claim to fame, but you can also find their patties at restaurants like Roywoods and Fahmee stores in Scarborough and on Lansdowne.
Peanut Plaza’s go-to bakery is famous for its coco bread sandwiches and curry goat patties, which you’d be remiss not to try. You can find their flaky pastries at restaurants like Aunt Elsie’s and Mr. Jerk. Their contributions to the Don Mills and Wilson subway station bake shops are severely underrated.
What started as a pandemic-time home business delivering pot pies and beef patties to customers’ doors is now a full-fledged store. You can pick up a box of Peter Pham’s vegan and beef patties from its food hall stall on Eglinton Ave. East.
