Empanada Sumprema Cart
On the corner of Broadway & West 38th Street
New York, NY 10011
Open: From Monday-Friday only
My review on TripAdvisor review:
I came across this little stand when I was walking around midtown Manhattan on West 38th Street, which is a treasure trove of reasonable restaurants that cater to the Garment District employees and tourists.
From 10th Avenue to 5th Avenue there are all sorts of small restaurants and stands that are mentioned on this blog.
The empanadas are freshly fried in small batches as they sell so they are always hot, fresh and crisp. At $2.00, they are a steal. They are large and filled with ground spiced beef, chopped spiced pieces of white meat breast of chicken and others are filled with cheeses. Three of them can make a complete meal with a soda. Make sure you ask for his hot sauce as it is a nice compliment to the empanadas.
They hold well too for those going back to the office to microwave them for later. They travel well if you have to go to other parts of the City. They are well made and don’t open when packaged for you.
The gentleman who runs the stand is really nice and helpful even when you are in a rush or he is busy. He is only open from Monday-Friday. Order a few and then have lunch at the tables outside on Broadway on a nice day. There is nothing like it!
