Best Empanada 

Tango Argentina Food

Care for a dumpling, little dumpling? Then you should care deeply about the empanadas made daily at Tango, for each one yields bitefuls of South American resplendence. Go ahead, gorge yourself on whichever savory flavor suits your fancy: creamy spinach, spicy ground beef (too fiery for you? There's a milder meat empanada as well) or the sweet and rich humita empanada made with loose corn and a tantalizing bchamel sauce. As Argentinean tradition dictates, Tango's empanadas are fist-size, deep-fried and closed along the seam with distinctive repluges—patterns pressed into the dough to indicate what's inside. One empanada makes for a perfect snack; many more, and you've got lunch or dinner for two.
