Empanadas in Mineola
i remember a while ago, a portuguese friend of my brother's always brought delicious empanadas to every party at my house. i am trying to find out where she got them! they were definitely in Mineola. i'd love any suggestions for great empanadas in or around Mineola.
I don't know about in Mineola, but the best ones that I have had are at Empandas del Parque in Corona off 108th Street. They have gotten a ton of press over the years - everything is made to order - ask for the green hot sauce.
Driving down Newbridge Rd. In East Meadow/Bellmore I saw a new bakery that had a sign out that mentioned foods/baked goods from Brazil - the sign specified empanadas. I will try them this week and report back.
