    It's not the fanciest of places (and that's an understatement), but the Chilean empanada with chopped beef, spices, egg, and raisins isn't to be missed.

    Great for a late night snack or to-go lunch. Grab the Chilean or turkey with spring onion and head to the Circle for some people watching.

    I ordered one with chorizo but definitely only had rice and beans in mine! Still good but stingy on the meat!

    Always consistently good. I have been enjoying these empanadas for many years and know of none better. The 14th Street location is closed (but remains on their website.)

    My fave is the turkey & spinach , although the saltenas ( with boiled egg ) and jamaican come pretty close :) :)

    It's stew in a edible pouch. Tasty, convenient, filling, and hits the spot on cold days. Desert ones aren't bad either.

    SO spicy! But delicious when you need something quick and handheld. Line looks long, but moves fast. I prefer chorizo.
