Marine's Empanadas in Houston

Marine's is a great place ... monstrous selection of empanadas (deep fried pies) ... custom made after you order them. Great filled w/ raspberries or apples or mixtures of fruits ... some not familiar to residents of Estados Unidos. Some filled w/ meats.

Also have a killer Tres Leches cake.

BEWARE ... these empanadas are straight out of the fryer ... guaranteed to burn your tongue.

It's on the SW corner strip center at Hillcroft and Westheimer ... if memory serves me correctly. There's an Apartment Finding agency on the street corner of that strip center. They close early in the evening ... so get there early.

Get a box & take 'em to the office if you wanna make some points.
