I said, Pass the Patty Pon the Left Hand Side, and eat your grub.
Play this shit to get the party started- props to Nahright for the treat. I think Ghostface over No, No, No was a little grimier.

There are going to be 3 gems in this post so pay attention. Back from the Yard (White Plains Rd. between Gunhill and 233rd) and my patty game is back in business. The other day I mentioned the Kingston Tropical Bakery, but I don't think I fully articulated how incredible these pockets of divinity are. That's TRUE MOTHERFUCKING STORY. It was a Sunday too- I thought they were closed but Sellasie I looked out for me.
1 beef and 1 chicken = 1 happy Howfresh. I stopped messing with chicken patties for a minute- the Golden Krusts and other bakeries just don't do it right- sloppy meat and all that. But after this one, I might only fuck with the pollo. Be clear that the beef are the best out, but the chicken patty had me at hello. Shit was incredible. A little sweet, a little savory- and the crust was on some Ghostface you sexy motherfucker damn what's the recipe steez. I would eat the crust alone- but they don't sell it.
The beauty of this patty is that there is minimal flaking. Chicken seemed to flake a little more than the beef, but nothing major. You know when you're driving and chomping on a patty you're yellow crumbed out. Shit gets everywhere and you need to get out to sprinkle off. Not these- they stayed in tact and behaved.
The consistency of both the chicken and beef were perfect- not too chunky and not too pureed. None of that hot beef liquid oozing out the side burning the roof of your mouth. They feel substantial, not a brick, but far from too delicate. This is the perfect patty.
As if putting you on to this wasn't enough, the following album will force you to go out and buy a tank top with mad holes.
