    These tasty treats are worth the hike to Corona, Queens, boasting a trio of empanada shell options such as corn flour for $1.50, white flour for $1.75, and even organic flour empanadas for $2.00. Read more

    Best empanadas in the city. You really can't go wrong. Sweet plantain (maduro) & cheese, corn flour - cheese, pesto, tomato & mozz, and ground beef w/ cheese are my fav. Gotta get cafe con leche too.
