This Wakefield takeout bakery—tucked inside the Baychester Shopping Center—brings flavors of the Caribbean to the Bronx. Load up on island staples like beef patties, ackee-and-saltfish and the house specialty, coco bread: The yeast-based pockets come stuffed with jerk chicken, hot dogs, or codfish and callaloo (amaranth stew). Fruit bread, coconut pies and Jamaican-style gizzadas—pinched-tart shells filled with spiced coconut centers—are available to sate your sweet tooth.
