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.

        Buff Patty
        376 Myrtle, at Clermont

        Jamaican Pride
        731 Flatbush Ave, at Clarkson, just outside Prosp Park

          A story in the Times last month said Buff Patty's patties are made by Royal Caribbean Bakery in Westchester. Royal Caribbean has several shops of its own (Bronx, Mt. Vernon, Spring Valley). http://www.royalcaribbeanbakery.com

            I think costco may sell Royal Caribbean patties....

          I don't know the exact location, but I used to get amazing, freshly made (not the frozen crap) beef patties with fresh coco bread and roti in a little shop near the Junction (where Flatbush and Nostrand meet). It was about a block east, I think.

            I'd be interested to know the name of the place--as I mentioned above I went to school there for four years and only saw Golden Crust.

              As I said, I don't remember the name. This was also going back about 10-15 years ago. Perhaps it is no longer there.

                Was it near the KFC? You might be speaking about the bakery or the place next to the bakery. I went to BC between '90 and '92. I believe I know the store you're talking about.

                  I honestly don't remember. But, I think it was a little Jamaican bakery. I know they bakes the coco bread fresh all day. It was always worth waiting for a fresh batch of the bread.
