You can find piping hot, flavorful empanadas in at Empanada’s Place in Culver City. This cash only hole-in-the-wall is a must have for true lovers of flavor and crunch. Try the criolla (aka: their “Most Typical Argentine Empanada”) filled with ground beef, green onions, raisins, all sorts of spices or the Arabe packed with lemon herb ground beef. Each are bursts of flavor while their Queso Ricotta empanada will cool you down. Spicy chicken and cheesy spicy beef empanadas were fantastic as well but the definite winner is the Arabe.
The desserts are outstanding as well. Flaky, caramel-filled, and powered with sugar atop. A must have.
