SquareMeal Review of
Jamaica Patty Co
The brainchild of Jamaican-born entrepreneur Theresa Roberts and award-winning Caribbean chef Collin Brown, this bijou Covent Garden hangout naturally majors on all manner of freshly baked Jamaican
patties – a West Indian take on the Cornish pasty with authentic fillings including richly spiced jerk chicken, curried goat and the classic combo of saltfish and ackee. Grab one to eat on the go,
or pull up a chair in the smart little basement dining area. There's also a selection of traditional Caribbean-inspired soups ranging from spicy pumpkin to chicken and dumpling, as well as banana
porridge for breakfast and moist Tortuga rum cake or banana bread for a sweet treat. To drink, check out the invigorating ‘soursop water’ (made from the graviola plant) or try something more
conventional such as a cup of smooth Blue Mountain coffee.
