Empanadas Are the New Cupcakes


photo love: Vita

Well, that might be an exaggeration, but when our girl Amanda texted us this, we had to bite into one again. She's our style-conscious moonpie who's deep into the hippy-hipster New York restaurant scene.

And after licking our fingers from the guava & cheese orgasm empanada just now, it got us thinking; if the world were one giant dinner party (which it is), what dish during which course would we be? Because some days we certainly do feel like a guava and cheese orgasm empanada, or a prefectly pink pixie stick cupcake.
*
But some days we feel like the green beans no one wants to eat. And some days (usually when we're really hungover), we feel like the coffee grounds left to burn in the fancy french press on the stove that we love so much.

Okay, just give us another empanada, please.

I'm most definitely pizza! Not my favorite food of all times for nothing! Its good hot, cold, a.m., p.m., sometimes surprising or fruity but never stale, its casual and cheezy...

What a surpise! Empanadas is our typical food, here in Argentina. We do them, or better, order them... Didn't know they were hitting the north way. But great! The gauchos would be so proud of you. :-)

Amanda, that video is flippin' hilarious! We only got through the beg. when the one guy got disqualified and said he didn't care but you knew he really did.

Co, you will always be the bestest Pizza Slut Lunch Buffet Pizza in the whole world to us.

well, within the d.c. circuit, julia has always done me right. she's a 250 pound mass of culinary genius, combining elements of jicama, yucca, spice of all sorts, bound within a capsule of crusty tanned crust. empanadas are better than the new cupcake, they're the new vitamin water, the new Emergency, the new Flaming Lips, THE NEW STRINGLESS VANS!
