Jamaican Beef Patties at Golden Krust
Jamaican beef patties. I discovered them at the Golden Krust bakery in Catonsville, and I thought they were pretty good. It's cheap snack food -- a dry crust wrapped around a meat filling. I liked the beef more than the chicken version, and since I have never had them before, I was sort of struck by the dry, unusual crust.
So was Kevin of the Kevin & Ann Eat Everything blog -- who clearly knows that the crust shouldn't be that dry. He excoriated Golden Krust in a review that I found earlier this month when I was thinking about this post: "gum shredding shards" and a "crust that wasn't even that golden." These haven't been a common snack, mostly because Golden Krust is in the shopping center with the H Mart where I often find something that I want to eat. But now, I wonder if I need to go sample beef patties elsewhere before I go back here.
