fantastic empanadas.. Jackson hts.
Try the empanadas at La Nueva Bakery, located at 86-10 37th Avenue b/w 86th and 87th. The chicken and the spinach are my favorites. The ground beef are good, too. Those three flavors are baked. They also have fried empanadas in other flavors, but I haven't tried those yet. I also like their breaded chicken cutlet sandwiches (sometimes a bit on the dry side) and their multi-layer club sandwiches called olimpicos.
Nice bakery items, too. When the pan de bono, churros and bunuelos are fresh out of the oven, they're wonderful. And decent cafe con leche, although I have a friend who thinks it's too weak. She prefers their capuccino.
I found some photos here:
It's been a while since I've been to Chivito d'Oro, but I've always found those empanadas good, but pretty standard. How do these compare with Cantina de Don Chicho in Corona, which have been mentioned in the past as arguably the best Argentine empanadas in the area?
Had dinner at El Chivito last week and started with the spinach, ground beef and chicken empanadas. The chicken was our least favorite a bit dry. They are a nice size and the pastry is baked and flavorful. Went back around 10pm to bring some home and they only had three left. We were big fans of Empanadas del Parque but by comparison they are smaller and deep fried not a bad thing but El Chivito won us over.
