La Nueva Argentina--Woodside

New(ish) to the landscape of Woodside (Roosevelt/64th) is a pizzeria that has renovated to a pizzeria and Argentine churrascaria. But it's really still a pizza joint. The grill area is in the storefront, and the pizza area in the rear. For steaks and such, it's a little too informal to be fully enjoyable. I've ordered their "sandwiches" to go, which is just a small order of the grilled meat, some bread, and chimichuri sauce. Pretty simple. They had vacio (hanger steak) cut one time, which they recommended instead of the entraña (skirt steak) and it was good, not great. But the real reason I keep going back here now is for their empanadas. It could be that I haven't had an Argentine empanada in a while, but I found these to be very good. The dough is nice and flaky, and the meat fillings are nicely flavored. They're $1.50 apiece. I'll have to make a trek to Don Chicho in Corona to make a comparison one of these days, but since it's so close, I'll keep coming here for the empanadas.
