best Empanadas in NYC
Posted October 15th, 2009 - 7:31 pm by from New York, United States (Permalink)
greetings All!

So I enjoy touring a city where I live for the best of certain foods it has to offer. So far, I've done Pizza, burgers, cupcakes and am moving on to Empanadas. I understand the regional varieties, but am interested in finding the best in the city. Doe anyone have any recommendations or care to join me on this quest?

Current places to go are:
Sur Empanadas
Il Buco
Native Specialties (queens)
Empanada Joe's
Ruben's Empanadas
Luz
Empanada Mama
Buenos Aires
Empanada Street Cart (w 53rd st)
Empanadas del Parque Cafe
Sofritos
Gauchas

any others? thanks

i havent tried most of these.
empanadas del parque in corona is hard to reach, but you also got the lemon ice king of corona next door. so it might be worth the trip. i live close by. let me know if you wanna go.
