I found some of what are known to be amazing empanadas out on Long Island at Island Empanada. They have multiple locations all over the island however, I went to their Merrick location. When browsing through my Instagram feed, I came across Island Empanada, and the food looked so spectacular that I knew it needed to get a review from me.
Now, there are multiple different types of empanadas you can get, and each one is only $3.50. So I got one for some of the ones I wanted to try. I got the Traditional Beef, Buffalo Chicken, BBQ Chicken, Chicken Bacon Ranch, Asian Chicken, and Pastel on, which is ground beef with sofrito sauce, cheddar, and sweet plantains. The empanadas were all delicious, and each one tasted like how they would through the name. I would say my favorite one was the Pastel on because I didn't know what to expect from that empanada, but it was really good and I enjoyed it!
