Terrible Empanada Experience La Mamma Allston

Ordered 3, they only fried two. Only realized it after I had waited 5 minutes for the fry job. Ended with one guy yelling at the other in Spanish that he told him 3 not 2. The place had a real depressing vibe unlike in the past.

Of the two, the spinach one had ruptured in the fryer losing 1/3 of it's contents. The chicken one had sprung a leek the other way, so the filling was 2/3 chicken, 1/3 liquid fryer grease. The chicken one was NOT edible. The spinach one only barely.

Won't eat there ever again.
