Jamaica Patty Co.

Time Out London, 2014

These golden-hued pasties come fresh from the oven, with a choice of fillings including jerk chicken, prawns or curried goat. Our finely ground minced beef version was rich with warming spices, while the curried goat was flecked with a decent dose of fiery scotch bonnet pepper. Each was encased in a suet-rich pastry, flaky and crisp around the edges. If your lunch hour feels like it’s passing as quickly as a Usain Bolt time trial, but you still need a substantial refuelling, then JPC’s patties will put meat on your bones.

The bottom line: Stirring up central London’s take away scene with filling Jamaican patties.
