If you don't know, now you know...

This is a beef patty.

It is greasy. It is dirty. It is delicious.

(If you didn't know what this was until now, I don't care if you lived in New York for the obligatory 10 years or whatever bullshit, you are not a New Yorker)

Oh, that takes me back to cheap lunches at the local pizza place when you just couldn't stand to eat another greasy slice. I remember the first time I saw someone had the pizza guy split it open and melt cheese on top. Its like gilding the lily but its artery clogging goodness at its finest.

How is this different from an empanada? They look very similar, but I assume the innards are different.

And splitting it open and putting cheese on it sounds ingenious!

You can get them at any and every pizzeria in NYC even though they're actually Jamaican.

They look like empanadas, but that's where the similarities end.

FYI, you can get them up here in Vancouver, BC as well, at a great Jamaican hole-in-the-wall called the Patty Shop. You have to ring a little bell when you are ready to order, and someone emerges from the back.... They come in beef/chicken/vegetarian in your choice of regular/curry/spicy. Really NOT greasy. Fucking awesome.

There's a chain store in NYC called Golden Krust that sells beef patties. There's one in Grand Central station. But it's not as good as the OG ones I used to get from the dirty pizerria by my mom's store in Elmhurst.
