(34) Argentine Beef Empanada @ Venga Empanada

I used to pass Venga Empanadas all the time when I lived a block away from it and for the longest time I didn't go in because the first time I passed the establishment the dyslexic idiot in me read their sign as VEGAN and not the Spanish word ¡venga! Initial thoughts: vegan empanadas?!??! Blasphemy. Duuuuuumb. I don't believe in veganism, so I avoided the place. [Any vegans out there? This one is for you.] It wasn't until I was strolling to work one morning and realized my transposition goof-up. Can't believe it took me this long to realize there were delicious empanadas around the corner. The Argentine beef empanada is a fresh flaky pocket of pastry (baked daily!) with moist natural ground beef, chopped onions, sauteed red bell pepper, and small bits of hardboiled eggs. It's cheap, fast, and substancial. ¡venga!
