Jamaica Patty Co.

Jamaican Patty COVER

It seems Covent Garden has another bringer of Jamaican fresh flavour and influence in the form of Jamaica Patty Co. This modern and stylish new gem of an eatery – the brainchild of Jamaica-born Theresa Roberts – is set to transform preconceptions about Caribbean cuisine with its contemporary but authentic approach. When it comes to menu, the stars of the show are of course those melt-in-the-mouth patties, freshly baked in-store every day, with a variety of deliciously spicy fillings including jerk chicken, prawn, curried goat and saltfish and ackee. JPC also delivers a fantastic selection of complementary Jamaican culinary delights throughout the day from a menu created by multi award-winning Jamaican chef Collin Brown.

These include a wholesome Jamaican porridge and a shot of Blue Mountain coffee to give the morning a delicious kick-start; or pop in for a slice of seriously addictive Tortuga rum cake or banana bread with a refreshingly different, freshly squeezed coconut water or soursop juice. The soursop is native to the Caribbean and produces a uniquely tropical drink renowned for its health benefits.

Caribbean chef of the year Collin also delivers some mouth-watering speciality soups with a twist, including the likes of punchy pumpkin soup with a spicy kick, chicken and dumpling and gungo pea – perfect for a healthy lunch on the go. There are also some unique and tasty treats to try, such as plantain crisps and Devon House Ice Cream (which aficionados will recognise as ‘the best ice cream in Jamaica’). With a cool and contemporary interior and packaging to match, this is a first in more ways than one – it’s the first of its kind in London and it’s Theresa’s first restaurant. As such, Jamaica Patty Co., whose passionate mission is to introduce the fresh flavour of Jamaica to as diverse a mix of customers as possible, is quite simply a breath of fresh air.
