Roll Call After Dark Nosh of the Week: Jamaican Patties at Sunrise Caribbean Cuisine

Jpats 445x333 Roll Call After Dark Nosh of the Week: Jamaican Patties at Sunrise Caribbean Cuisine

(Jason Dick/CQ Roll Call)

Bring us your beef, chicken or vegetable Jamaican patty at Sunshine Caribbean Cuisine.

Located in the basement of Washington’s Union Station, tucked away in a corner that was probably at one point a train tunnel, Sunshine serves up pan-Caribbean cuisine, such as oxtail or goat lunch plates, pholourie and cocoa bread. Its simple Jamaican patties, though, are the perfect, and cheap, grab-and-go nosh. Two bucks gets you one of these caloric pastries.

These Hot Pocket/empanada/what-have-you cousins contain a little something for everyone. The vegetable patty, a sort of succotash pie, is a creamy delight with a little kick to it. The beef is the spiciest of the bunch, and the humble chicken patty starts off like chicken salad and ends like hot sauce.
