where to get jamaican patties in Bklyn, especially Flatbush
I have a friend coming to visit who loves patties, veggie and meat. Does anybody have suggestions for the best places to get them? I understand that Chrysties has gone downhill. Have read that a place called Angel Flake is good, but would love first-hand recommendations.
Ital Shak on Nostrand near Empire Blvd.
Christies on Flatbush Av. where 8th Av. intersects
Veggie Castle on Church Av.
I went to school at Brooklyn College/Flatbush Av. and the only patties I recall in that specific area were from Golden Krust--yuck.
I vote Ital Shak for the veggie- Bring a container for the pepper sauce, as they don't have any. I have not found the definitive meat patty joint- I like Buff Patty on Myrtle, but closer to my home is the "In Between" on Church off CIA. Just walk East on Church and try some random joints- Of course there are some abysmal patties on Flatbush, but I ain't givin up.
I went on a patty quest recently and Buff Patty in Clinton Hill was the most delicious place I visited. Jamaican Pride on Flatbush was a close second. Not quite as spicy, but very crisp and rich, complex flavor.
376 Myrtle, at Clermont
731 Flatbush Ave, at Clarkson, just outside Prosp Park
