We continue our series on the amazing diversity of restaurants at 1253 Vine with Argentinian Empanadas. This modest shop sells fabulous empanadas either to eat in or frozen to take home. I tried all the savory varieties and they were excellent across the board: Chicken with a nice curry seasoning, ham and onion and ham and cheese were reminiscent of French onion tarts, corn and potato had a sweet corn taste, veggie had a creamy spinach filling and the ground beef was well seasoned. These are the ultimate party food; I know the next time I have a party, I'll be grabbing a couple dozen to cook at home.
Argentinan Empanadas also claims to have the city's best milanesa, a claim I will definitely check out and on which I will report back.
Argentinian Empanadas also has locations in Venice and on Robertson.
