I’m not a big sandwich person (more of a noodle soup girl), but this past weekend, all I ate were sandwiches. Not sure what happened, but when a craving hits, you just run with it. And I’m glad I did, because I think I just discovered a contender to my favorite downtown sandwich, Katz’s pastrami on rye. MORE »
It’s rare I have a hero craving, but when I do, my two go-to places are Defonte’s of Brooklyn and Faicco’s Italian Specialties. If you were wondering, this isn’t a Bite vs Bite.

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.
