empanar : to wrap or coat in bread April 24th, 2008
Julia’s Empanadas is not a DC foodie secret — I think everyone has been there at least once, whether it was stumbling in after a night at the bars, or just for a quick cheap lunch. Read the reviews and it’s hard to find a bad word about the place. There’s a whole display case of freshly-made empanadas to choose from. Little balls of dough holding all sorts of deliciousness – Matt likes the Chilean Beef ones, and the veggie ones are scrumptious too. And then there is a whole dessert empanada sector that I haven’t even tried approaching – yet.
Funny story. Or maybe you had to be there, I can’t tell. Friend of ours walked in there with us somewhat late one night, he looked at the (already sealed-up) empanada pouches and ordered one, but “hold the onions.” The guy behind the counter, who had a tattoo on his forehead, shook his head. It’s not a made-to-order place. You get what you get. And you will love it!
