Spinach and chicken empanadas from Carniceria Argentino are pretty damn tasty, says carter.
Rincon Chileno, a Chilean place, has great empanadas, says oro3030.
On the Westside, Empanadas Place has something for everyone, with about a dozen varieties. Their empanadas are deep-fried; for something a bit lighter, Grand Casino has smaller baked empanadas in four flavors.
Spain, in Silverlake, is actually Argentinean-owned and has good empanadas. So does Porto’s.
