Great Empanadas - South London

Paprikaboy | Jan 5, 2014 03:21 AM

I go to my local Venuzulan cafe about once a month. Food has always been good and I always liked the arepas but never really appreciated them until I tried some at a place in Elephant and there was a huge gulf in the taste and quality.
The real reason for posting though is the empnanada I tried yesterday.
The empanadas are fried to order and made with cornmeal. The outer shell is crisp, then a soft almost spomge cake like texture. They weren't stingy on the filling of tender shredded beef. I would cross London to get these so I'm lucky they're on my doorstep.
