Notes From the Field: DC Empanadas
Our critics give new restaurants a quick look and report back with their first impressions. In honor of our Food Truck Fight, we checked out a mobile vendor.
The "Badass" version—Buffalo chicken with blue cheese—was the best of the three I tried. Wildly nontraditional, yes, but still delicious in its own right. It took me a few bites, but I ended up with an affinity for the spinach-and-feta filling of the "El Greco." A pocket of rice and shredded beef was too dry and boring to hold my attention. It only left me more space for the excellent dessert: two thin chocolate cookies sandwiched together with peanut-butter cream.
