Miami's Five Best Jamaican Patties: The Power of a Proper Pastry
2. Hammond's Bakery
On the outskirts of a barren dead zone created by Dolphin Stadium sits Wayne Hammond's bakery. Here you won't find any of those greasy bright yellow things gas stations try to pass off as real food. Hammond's took the award in 2012 for the best patty in town. They even offer a vegetarian callaloo patty we said was "downright healthy." Yet if you're going to come to this part of town to do something other than watch Dolphins owner Stephen Ross burn stacks of money we suggest you grab a dozen beef patties for $18.

1. Sonia's Patties
When you walk into Sonia's Patties you see two things: The first is usually a group of people waiting around for their order. The second is an impatient person wincing in pain after biting into a searing hot patty fresh out of the fryer. Choices here are simply mild and spicy beef and curry chicken. Patties are fried to order, so be patient and don't burn yourself. If you're lucky you'll go on a day when they're selling curry lobster patties for $5.99.
