Little Paraguay Deli on Lake Street, W Harrison

I always pass this place on the way to my girlfriend's place. I've never seen a place that sells Paraguayan food around these parts (or in NYC, for that matter). Heck, I didn't even know what Paraguayan cuisine entailed.

Finally, I stopped in one afternoon. I tried a couple of empanadas - one with chicken, one with ground beef - $2 each. They're deep-fried, but I didn't think they were that greasy. The chicken empanada was OK, a little bland, the ground beef one was better. But what was unusual was that they both had cooked, crumbled egg in them - I haven't seen that in an empanada outside of a gimmicky breakfast one.

There was other stuff in a steam table that looked interesting: a stew and a noodle dish. They also had yummy-looking flan in a display case.

It's open 7 days a week, but only until 7:30 p.m. (3:30 p.m. on Sundays). There are a couple of small tables in front, otherwise, it looks like a typical deli.

Anyone else been here? Impressions?
