Battle of the Jamaican Patties

Irie Jamaican Restaurant vs. The Breadfruit Authentic Jamaican Grill

We're no expert when it comes to Jamaican patties, but we love, love, love them anyway. We're talking about the crispy little meat pies filled with goodies like spicy ground beef, fish or vegetables. Jamaican patties are found in Jamaica, of course, and throughout parts of the Caribbean as well as at a few extra special restaurants here in the Valley of the Sun.
