Empanadas are half moon shaped pastries filled with meat, fish, cheese, etc. and are said to have originated in Galicia and Portugal. This style of pie has been exported throughout the world and is especially popular in the ex Spanish colonies of South America.
Having been convinced that these Argentine Empanadas are good, I bought one to try it. The girl behind the counter told me that carn picant (spicy meat) is the most popular and it was fantastic – a hot chilli meat sauce in a crispy pastry that smelled like pancakes. Now I wish I’d bought half a dozen for breakfast!
I believe they are open until about 3 am and sell pizza, empanadas, pastries and beer.
