You can get a surprising variety of food of different origins in Vietnam: Indian, Brazilian, Spanish, Middle Eastern and German/Turkish. However, they did not have everything, such as Jamaican food. Montréal has Jamaican food and so I got to eat some Jamaican patties. My sister ordered them for pre-bachelorette celebrations (something about pole dancing, I didn’t ask more…). She ordered extra for a gathering at my mom’s.
My sister ordered cocktail sized patties for the parties. She grabbed a beef patty for herself and a vegetarian one for me to try. The beef one was stuffed with ground beef with a slight kick but I could have handled more. The combination of the flaky shell and ground meat is reminiscent of a Vietnamese bánh paté chaud. The vegetarian one was stuffed with frozen vegetables it seemed, like corn and green beans. It was still very good with the same kick.
Cocktail patties, $7.50 per dozen. The red dotted patties are the vegetable ones.
