In celebration of National Empanada Day on Monday, April 8th, the Nuchas Empanadas truck delighted us with an array of sweet and savory pastries. A longtime NYC favorite of the famed Midtown Lunch blog, they feature an inventive take on the classic handheld treat, with a range of flavor profiles including shrimp-and-andouille jambalaya, shiitake curry or apple-cranberry-and-nutella. But the best part about their concept? They create special doughs to pair with their unique fillings—rosemary, turmeric, paprika, you name it!—that look as good as they taste. We always appreciate a good reminder to play with food.
