York Castle Patties
This afternoon I renewed my crush on York Castle Tropical Ice Cream in Silver Spring. I eschewed the rum raisin, the soursop, the grapenut, and all the frozen goodness for the patties, which turn out to be quite tasty.
Spicy beef was my favorite, and the runner up was the veggie, filled with carrots, chinese cabbage, and other unidentifiable tasty mush.
In fact, that might be my only complaint - that the fillings are largely mushy. But this texture seems to be kind of typical of patties, so perhaps I'm unfairly biased. Most problematic for the chicken, my least favorite of the trio. They also have a non-spicy beef.
Vegetarians should rejoice: the pastry is made from vegetable oil. I miss the taste of pig, but the flakiness to gooey ratio is very good for oil.
The patties are made on the premises, and I ate them at about noon on a Saturday afternoon. They tasted relatively fresh then.
