Peruvian empanadas

Postby GoogaMooga » 19 Sep 2021, 16:01

I've tasted a Peruvian empanada and it was yummy! Served warm, with a special dip which you can slap on top with a little spoon. At six bucks it was a little expensive, and one wasn't really enough. Way better than kebab, burger, and pizza.

I had the exotic taste lingering in my mouth all the way home.

I know very little about Peru: marching powder, Paddington Bear, Alberto Fujimori, and spitting lamas... add to that "empanada".

35 kroner, roughly six bucks. Can you get them in Texas?

Yes- most empanadas are made with lard though so they are usually off limits for me.

hm yes they are made a little different then the other latina countries empanadas.
They should have a little kick to them but that might be something my Peruvian friends add.

In regards to Peru its a very underrated food.
here is an article on top 10 Peruvian foods (stay away from the last one Coy(yuck).Ceviche (Peruvian style is the first and best), Papa a la Huancaina, Leche de Tigre, Causa all yummy.

Tiradito - if you go to a Peruvian restaurant try this instead of Ceviche- its raw(or lightly cooked) fish in a sauce. yummy

They make yummy deserts too

I'm sure Hightea meant to write Ceviche and he's 100% correct on that one. Empanadas from Peru are very good to but for me nothing beats the Uruguayan empanadas at Sal y Piementa located on Town & Country Blv., City Centre, Houston. Had some yesterday actually.

Rebecca and I ate at a Peruvian restaurant in San Francisco about ten years ago that was amazing. They had a ceviche bar with all kinds of sea creatures available which is pretty much what I ate. Empanadas are great comfort foods.
