Carb-on-Carb Action at Golden Krust – NYC
I’ve been writing about Asia for so long now, many of you may have been wondering what I’ve been eating these days besides bar food. Well, during the day I’ve been busy at work so I’ve been either packing my lunch or going to Chiyoda Sushi (Their usual $9.95 nigiri sushi set has been $7.96 since last month!). However, today I wanted something carby, not sure why, but that’s what I was craving so I made a stop at Golden Krust and got a Mild Beef Patty ($1.99, I got the mild only because it was the only meat patty ready at the time, it was either that or soy or vegetable. Mild Beef please!) and a piece of Coco Bread ($0.95). Put them together and what do you have? A Jamaican beef patty sandwich. Now, I’m sure you’re wondering, ‘Why on god’s green earth would you need to eat a patty between two pieces of bread?!” To which I respond, “Why the hell not?!” But seriously, coco bread makes a Jamaican beef patty more of a meal than a snack, and sometimes you want plain carbs with your greasy savory snack; be it bread, rice, or noodles.
At Golden Krust, they don’t assemble the beef patty for you, and you have to do it yourself, but it’s not rocket science. Split the coco bread in two and pop in the patty. And if you haven’t had coco bread before, don’t be surprised if it doen’t taste like coconuts. It’s not made with any. It’s just a sweet soft roll yearning for a little carb-on-carb action. Satisfy it with a flaky Jamaican patty filled with salty meat and watch the magic happen.
