Best Empanada

Hey I'm looking for the best Empanada in the city or its New Jersey Suburbs...it doesn't matter what country it's from or what's in it, just whatever's the best

      La Nueva Bakery in Jackson Heights has the best argentine empanadas I've had in New York. Get the meat empanadas with raisins (carne con pasas de uva).

        Havana Central has GREAT empanadas!!!

        Their main location is 22 E. 17th Street in Manhattan. I think they also opened a location in Times Square.

        They also have good margaritas. :-)
