Baked Empanadas

hellskitchenette | Apr 12, 2008 11:24 AM

I recently went to Argentina (specifically to Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Iguazu & Santiago del Estero), and now that I'm back in the States I'm completely craving baked empanadas. I've been to some Argentine restaurants in Manhattan since the trip: Chimichurri Grill, Buenos Aires, Gaucho Quick Grill, and La Rural. They all have fried empanadas. La Rural's were absolutely the best, but I'm still craving baked Argentine empanadas like the ones we had in Argentina. Mama Empanada in Hell's Kitchen has baked empanadas that are very very dry, and they can't hold a candle to the kind I had Argentina. Does anyone know where I can find these ubiquitous baked empanadas? I'm willing to travel anywhere within the NY metropolitan area to find these fantastic savory treats. Thanks so much in advance!
