Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill is a Jamaican, West Indian and Caribbean cuisine fast food chain based in the Bronx, New York. The parent company is owned by second-generation immigrants from Jamaica and the stores are franchised.
The principal unique offering is Jamaican patty, a pastry with various fillings and spices baked inside a flaky shell, often tinted golden yellow with an egg yolk mixture or turmeric. It is made like a turnover but is more savory. Other versions of the Jamaican street food take-away are deep-fried for an even crunchier eating experience.

The restaurant also sells frozen take-out Vegetable, soya and spinach patties are various-sized concessions of Golden Krust to health-conscious customers. Jerk chicken is the third main attraction. Jerk is barbecued chicken or pork, unique to Jamaica, either dry-rubbed or wet-marinated with a very spicy mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. The more popular version is the half-open wrap like pita bread.
Golden Krust is more the ethnic, fast-casual dine-in choice. The somewhat exotic positioning allows the franchisees to cater a whole range of affordable combinations and give non-tourists a taste of Caribbean staples even if they can’t afford a cruise ticket.
Golden Krust currently boasts over 120 outlets (including schools and penitentiaries) in nine Eastern seaboard states.
