I will not surprise anybody by saying that Empanadas Café serves mainly...empanadas. If you want to eat something else, you are going to be very, very, very, limited. I was excited to go there, not only because I love empanadas, those little pockets of deliciousness that are either baked or fried, but also because they offer a wide variety of them, away from the classic beef or cheese ones.

This place is small and casual. You order your empanadas at the counter, pay and, when it is ready, they will bring them to you on a wooden plank with some hot sauce and chimichurri sauce..

The last time we went they even had a deal: for $7, you get a fresh squeeze juice and an empanada. So I got myself a delicious fresh squeeze orange juice.

I thought the empanadas are just ok, even the simple cheese (not melted) or beef (I for sure prefer the one from La Isla that is amazing) were so so. We went there twice and I have to say that I am not sold yet...Would I go back? Not sure...

Enjoy (...)!
