I must have an empanada! But where?

Lisa Williams | Aug 9, 2003 09:51 AM

I went to high school in Puerto Rico. My high school did not have a cafeteria, and each day a truck would pull up alongside the fence, and you could have A) a pressed sandwich featuring pork, ham, cheese, and a pickle or B) a wonderful tomato and cheese enchilada with a crispy and almost translucent skin.

I must have an enchilada. More to the point, I must have an enchilada that is not really a replay of a calzone, with a pastry wrapper half an inch thick composed of reclaimed, rehydrated plaster. Where do you go to get one around here? Are any of the latino places in Allston-Brighton promising in this area?

BTW, thanks to everyone who helped with my Watertown/Cambridge butchershop request. The steak au poivre came out lovely. (See link below).
