There's this little stand next to Pep's Ice cream on Broad street, it used to be a hot dog stand, and it only has a window. Peps used to be the Rita's Water Ice and is fairly new in that location.

A friend told me about it so we had to try it...mostly, they make empanadas. They also make "tartas" which are like a layered quiche, but with hardboiled eggs and cheese on top. The tartas are massive...they're at least 1.5 lbs and are less than $5. We got a ham one and ate it for about 8 meals. It was pretty tasty, the real star is the empanadas. They have a sweet corn one, as well as some expected things, like spicy beef and spicy chicken. The BBQ pork is spicy and sweet and unexpected in a really good way.

They are small empanadas, so 2-3 in a side dish would be a good sized meal. Really 2 is all you need.

The owner gave us free flan our first trip there, and that was also really good. It's literally a mom & pop place, with the daughter helping. Really small, and take out only at this point.

They have other things, like sandwiches and such on the menu, but we didn't try those.

www.bochisfood.com is their website. Really loud music is playing so beware.
