Espiga Bakery - Superb Mexican Baked Goods (Raleigh)
Just off Capitol Boulevard immediately south of I-540 in the same little strip mall with the Burger King and Post Office.
This little bakery has a couple of tables. They make everything from scratch fresh daily. A nice selection of empanadas and sandwiches. Very reasonably priced and much better quality than Panera across the road.
This is a find.
According to the website, they're Ecuadorean. I like Ecuadorean empanadas- they're small and simple. Is that what they have? They do have at least one specifically Ecuadorean item on the products list- pan de Ambato.
Do they have any other Ecuadorean stuff, like soups or llapingachos?
Edit: They have a Spanish version of the website.
"Empanadas de Queso: Un pan suave relleno de queso fresco, levemente banado con azúcar."
That's an Ecuadorean empanada.
