Just found an oddball "food find" in Burbank, of all places. Fresh baked empenadas in the back of a liquor store on one of the most non-descript Burbank streets you can imagine. It's one of those "this makes no sense" spots where you have two guys toiling over hot ovens trying to pump out trays of hot empenadas that compete for beef jerky or zag nuts from the adjacent covenience store.
And yes - they were good. Moreover, I saw them making a chicken milanese sandwich that made no sense for a spot like this. There was some sort of thick chimi-churri aioli spread over crispy french bread with super-charred, fried, chicken cutlets laid out on top.
Anyway, good for Burbank (who I think gets a really bad rep for food). Go pick up some epenadas (to go).
