Fresh Empanadas at El Amacen

There’s something to be said about sitting in this cafe and having numerous walk ins order bunches of empanadas to take home. Very good sign.

I saw them making them as the other woman was making my Americano from their beautiful espresso machine. It’s a serious show stopper.  Beyond all that, it is one of my favourite places to hang out sans wi-fi.

But on to the empanadas. Perfect. The dough, the filling – combined perfection. Beef and olive was divine. The chicken was phenomenal but if I had to pick, beef and olive wins!

I’m always amazed how some of the best cuisines from each country are the foods you can walk and eat with.
