We be jammin’ this double down Jamaican jerk patty sandwich!

OK, now this has gotta be one of the most funkalicious sammies I’ve feasted on in a while. So I’m hanging out on Front Street, where I’ve got a reservation at Casey’s, and I spot this little food stand serving up some honky tonk redonkadonk Island flavours in the Union Market. It’s Jamaican jerk joint meets KFC, with a splash of Sriracha on top. Check out this funky jam:

So, what we’ve got here is not one, but two Jamaican beef patties, some nice, chewy bacon, Swiss cheese fondue, lettuce, tomato, and hot Sriracha, all served up inside a coco bun. I dunno who came up with this dish, but somebody give him a gold medal, cuz this is the Usain Bolt of culinary creativity.

Now, if we break it down, the bacon is super tasty, we get a soft crunch from the patty shell and a spicy kick from the beef; the cheese just oozes all over the place, but the Sriracha is what makes it. Dude, they take a Scarborough convenience store staple, cross it with the greatest culinary creation in KFC history, and then add some Thai spiciness to the mix!? That is so far outta bounds, it’s like throwing the discus into the fifth row!

And no, that’s not a tear in my eye—it’s the sriracha talking, bro.
