Empanadas, I love them. They're tasty, convenient, come in lots of flavours and can be delivered to your apartment at almost any time of day or night.
Normally we order from El Noble Repulgue - one of the more famous empanada chains in the city and one of favourites. But last night we thought we'd try something different and went for a more artesenal style. La Aguada (Billinghurst 1862) was the answer - they're a restaurant with cocina regional, or regional food.
We ordered a selection of their empanadas especiales such as the Albahaca (basel, mozzarella, tomates and black olives), Tambo (8 types of cheese including roquefort) and De la Huerta de Andres (8 different vegetables mixed in a fresh herb sauce). Delicious! They seemed more authentic and probably healthier than the Noble's deep-fried empanadas.
I see from the menu card they left us that La Aguada can also deliver a selection of other traditional and regional foods like Locro, Carbonada and Mondongo so I'll have to give them a try some day too. Or better yet maybe I'll make a trip down to their establishment and soak up some of the atmosphere aswell.
