We’ve made it our business to eat all the empanadas in New York. Think of it as market research, if you will. Many of them are good, some disappointing, but we’d not come across any truly great ones until we stumbled across some at a somewhat unlikely spot: a Brazilian market in Astoria. Mmmmm. They’re quite unlike our Argentine empanadas, or the fried empanadas of Central America – the dough is dense, almost quiche like, and the fillings cheesy. They’re seriously rico. Read about Rio Market and it’s (many other) Brazilian offerings over on Serious Eats.
