I could eat here every day and not get tired of it. The crab empanada and Spanish bean soup make a great, inexpensive meal, and there's a large variety.

I love empanadas but prefer the South American (Argentinian, Colombian) style with boiled eggs, potatoes, raisins. These are Caribbean style, but not as greasy as Jamaican or Puerto Rican. Lots of flavors, not as authentic as I was wanting but a lot of fun. A...More
