Long time fan of Ruben's ham and cheese. Not authentic but good with lots of hot sauce. Empanada Mama's pernil was delicious. Used to love Havana Pie's "cuban sandwich" empanada when they opened on 14th street. Are they still on 23rd(?) street? I would give high marks to BarFry's "beignet"-really a beef empanada. Jamaican Flavors on Sullivan makes a good jerk chicken patty. I've had some good ones at Argentinean restaurants around the city. What's the best?
