Pockets Full of Deliciousness
This spot specializes in the Latin American filled pastries called empanadas, in varieties both savory and sweet. Fillings range from the traditional criolla (a mix of ground beef, onions and raisins) and sweet guava and cheese to local favorites Texas brisket and chorizo. Vegetarians can find much to love, with the sweet potato-stuffed camote empanada, as well as spinach and onion and cheese pastries. And if you're hankering for an empa fix on your way home, call ahead and Empa Mundo can have your order ready to go.
