5 best restaurants for empanadas for National Empanada Day 2017!


Happy National Empanada Day! Many cultures put a different twist on the stuffed bread/pastry. So there is no such thing as your basic empanada. We found some beyond-basic spots to get your empanada fix today!

AVOCADO GRILL

This downtown West Palm spot  is celebrating National Empanada Day with their delicious mushroom empanada! Get one today!

Avocado Grill: 125 Datura St., West Palm Beach; 561-623-0822


CALAVERAS CANTINA

The flaky duck empanadas at this Harbourside Place eatery are addictively good. They’re fried crispy with a juicy center of duck confit and mushrooms. A batch of four, served with a side of avocado ranch dipping sauce, make a great, shareable starter.

Calaveras Cantina: 125 Dockside Circle, Jupiter; 561-723-0059


BUCCAN

Chef Clay Conley makes the best empanada in town. You’ll need a reservation, valet tip cash and proper attire to savor it, but, oh, is it ever so worth it to dig into Buccan Palm Beach’s short rib empanada. Conley dresses it up with a touch of salsa criolla and Peruvian-style ají amarillo (yellow pepper sauce).

Buccan: 350 S. County Rd., Palm Beach; 561-833-3450


JARDIN

This Clematis street spot has added Gator empanadas to their menu! These unique pastries are served with Creole remoulade.

Jardin: 330 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 561-440-5273


MOJITOS

This lively spot atop CityPlace makes empanadas with your choice of three fillings: roasted chicken, picadillo or ham and cheese.

Mojito Latin Cuisine: 700 S. Rosemary Ave. (CityPlace, second floor), West Palm Beach; 561-832-6688

Best Bites: Triscuit Fig & Honey crackers

Some crackers are meant for snacking, some are meant for cheese. Some, like the original Triscuit, are great for both. One of Triscuit’s newest flavors, Fig & Honey, is meant for cheese. Lightly sweet, and with an even lighter hint of fig, these crackers would be superb with creamy cheeses (I had them with brie) or cheese with fruit, such as...
