Try a Pattie in Jamaica:
After a the zip line tour at Chukka, we were headed for a Hike and Bike tour at Bracco. However, all that ”flying through the trees” on the zip line made us hungry. So, the driver of our blogger bus stopped for one of the things that Jamaica is famous for: Patties. The name of the store was “Juici Patties”
The best way to describe a Patti is to say that it is kind of like an empanada. Simply put, it is a flat bread with a stuffing such as beef, cheese, shrimp, etc. You can buy them at lots of places that have a sign offering “Pattis”. It is known as the fast food of Jamaica. One f the people on the bus took our order and soon reappeared with a bag full of “Patties”.
As everyone was chowing down, the conversation turned to: “you should have tried the shrimp one, or wow, was that vegetable pattie good”. Bottom line: we were all stuffed with something none of us had ever eaten before. That is part of the fun of traveling—it’s all about trying new food and new places with new friends! Next time you go to Jamaica make sure you try some “Patties”!
Turns out we would need all that food for fuel at our next stop–Bracco Bike and Hike Tours!
