Easy to eat on the go, empanadas are a staple of the Argentine diet. There are hundreds of little empanada shops throughout the city, but this one in Recoleta arguably serves the best and is especially popular for both take out or eating in. The restaurant serves dishes from the province of San Juan, where empanadas tend to be a bit spicier than elsewhere, and the menu also includes specialties like stews and corn husk-stuffed humitas. Try the spicy beef, creamed corn, or mozzarella with tomato and basil. And never eat an empanada with a fork and knife—always eat them by hand, like the locals do.
