Add a tropical twist to your next family outing in London with a stop at Jamaica Patty Co. This popular patty shop and cafe brings the flavors of Jamaica to Covent Garden with a fiercely authentic menu featuring all the Caribbean classics. Right when you walk in, the aromas of all the fresh ingredients will have you ready to eat the first thing you see, but start slow with some fresh-squeezed juice for the kids and a cup of Blue Mountain coffee for yourself. Grown in the mountains north of Kingston, it’s considered by many to be the finest coffee in the world. As for the restaurant’s namesake patties, imagine a Cornish pasty and add that unique blend of Jamaican spice that finds the sweet spot between spicy and tangy. The kids will love the jerk chicken patty, made with a Jamaican allspice rub, while you might want to turn up the heat with curry goat. And don’t miss out on the ackee and salt fish patty, the unofficial national dish of Jamaica. Chunks of fish are tucked inside one of the shop’s flaky, buttery envelopes of dough, providing a tantalizing taste of the sea in every bite. As you’re mixing and matching all the different patty varieties, save a little room for dessert. The kids have their choice of bakery items, but mom and dad should split a slice of Tortuga rum cake – yet another must-have import from the islands.
