If you prefer a meaty filling in your patty over the crunch of a thick crust, then Hammond’s is your best bet. The crust isn’t that flaky - instead, it’s thin and lacks a gold color, but you can taste the pepper and thyme in it before you reach the filling. But since the crust is thinner, you get more filling, along with a stronger scotch bonnet pepper flavor. We like the generous filling in these patties, despite the lack of crunch and flake of the crust, and if you like curry and spice as much as we do, then you'll enjoy these too. Hammond’s serves a variety of patties: beef (mild/spicy/spicy cheesy), chicken (mild/jerk), callaloo, vegetarian, and ackee and saltfish. They also offer a cocktail patty option that allows you to pre-order custom patties in all the same flavors in a finger-food size.
