Got some takeout from Mama’s Empenadas tonight. This small establishment is on Greenpoint Ave, between 42nd and 43rd, and sells a variety of items, although empanadas are obviously the focus.
Each empanada is only a $1.60, although you have to pay a few cents extra to get them oven baked (as I did) instead of fried. They come with three different sauces – sweet, spicy, and mild, which are surprisingly good and go quite well with the meal.
The two varieties I ordered were chicken and “Greek”, which contains spinach and feta cheese. There are many other kinds as well, and all I’ve tried so far have been quite delicious.
