You have probably already eaten empanadas. Then, you
should try the Chilean version. They are delicious!
Try the beef or chicken.
As far as I know, there's only one place in Manhattan
that sells them: it's a non-descript pizza shop called
"Freddie and Peppers", at Amsterdam (between 74 and 75th
St). Their pizza is so-so, but the empanadas are worth
the trip. Sometimes I buy half a dozen and freeze them.
PS. After you've gorged on empanadas, try the wonderful
cookies at "Levain Bakery", just around the corner on
