NY woman resorts to baseball bat after beef patty not available

"Where's the beef?"

A woman who couldn't get a beef patty at a favorite New York eatery used a baseball bat in protest. On Saturday, police released surveillance video of the woman in action in the Bronx — smashing a restaurant's windows after learning the eatery had run out of her favorite food.

Police say the woman at the Back Home restaurant in the Morrisania neighborhood came in on the afternoon of Jan. 15 and ordered a patty. She was told they'd run out, and she got upset. Authorities say she left and came back to the Jamaican restaurant with the bat. The video shows a woman bashing in two windows. She fled and police were still searching for her on Saturday.

The video shows a woman dressed in a black and white jacket and matching sneakers, swinging a multi-colored aluminum bat as bystanders tried to stop her before she walked away. No one was injured during the incident.

The Back Home restaurant in the Morrisania neighborhood is a simple, affordable spot that offers Jamaican specialties like curry goat and oxtail, drawing people from around the city.

1. Here's a Jamaican beef patty



Maybe short for "pasty."

4. Yep

I became 'addicted' to them after two weeks living in the mountains of Jamaica with a local family.
Fortunately I was able to find & buy them upon returning to Hartford, CT

I don't know where I'd find them now in Albuquerque.

7. Try Empanadas from a local Mexican restaurant.

Different flavors, but still good.

10. The irony here is that GoldenKrust one block away

had lots of patties - so I have been told. That said I only eat one brand of patty and I eat chiicken, seafood or vegi as I don't eat red meat.

27. Golden Krust is pretty good

maybe not as good as this Mom and Pop place. But it should have satisfied her.

but the Yardies say that Golden Krust is not what it was when the original owner was at the helm.

6. I think every culture makes something like that.

And I like them all. Hand pies, empanadas, peirogies, pasties, calzones...savory or sweet, they're always good to eat.

31. You may be biased, you know.



I've eaten many different varieties of the same concept. German/Russian Bierocks, Empanadas, Perogies of all sorts, Cornish Pasties, Hand Pies from various places. They're all good. Each reflects the cuisine of its culture, and has the flavors of that culture. They're all lunch you can carry in your jacket or coat pocket to eat later.

20. Actually you probably have it the wrong way around.

Given that so many of the “wacky Florida” stories involve transplants from New York.

Or, you know, there’s the fact that crazy people are everywhere.

Now, if they were out of the curried goat I would understand.
