From croquetas and Cubanos to arepas and tacos, Miami is well stocked with easy-to-navigate dining options from Latin American cultures. But there’s no denying the allure of the Jamaican pie. At Time Out Market, the newly opened King Patty’s takes popular street food to new heights with an array of fillings. In addition to the signature spicy beef, there are chicken ghirak, prawn curry and chicken curry. King Patty’s serves up its creations with an optional coconut bread side—which doubles as a pillow cake for a delicious muffin sandwich. Open from Sunday to Thursday from noon to 10 pm, Friday and Saturday from noon to 11 pm
