Empanada de carne + Empanada de questo y cebolla + 1L de Stella from Pizzeria Angélico
My first day in Buenos Aires was spent unpacking, setting up my room, running back and forth from the Disco to buy perchas, champú, convertidores, etc. As I know nobody in this city, as my roommates were gone for the weekend, as my sudden departure from Boston due to this hurricane named Irene, followed by a 13 hour cross-continental overnight trip left me too physically exhausted to venture beyond the confines of my new home, I decided to have a night in, saying belated goodbyes over fb and watching videos on youtube (no streaming beyond the U.S….). Upon feeling hunger pangs, however, I decided to order some stuff and quickly found Buenos Aires Delivery, an English language delivery service, and through it Pizzeria Angelica. I ordered 2 empanadas (about $1 each) and a liter of Stella to calm my weary soul. They arrived within 20 minutes, a grand total of about $7 for the entire order. The empanadas were great, the dough a little undercooked but I wasn’t picky. I especially liked the mozzarella that was used in the cheese and onion empanada, as it was higher in quality than what I would expect from a pizzeria empanada. The beef-onion empanada was also delicious, with hearty chunks of carne in a slightly spicy, salty sauce. Not great but not bad. Very comforting though, for sure.
