Calavera: TidBit of the Day

| September 27, 2012

A new empanada & tequila bar opened up in Raleigh, NC, Calavera. For $3, the empanadas are an incredible value, especially consider the quality and flavors. The pastry is perfect, and the choices are simply lovely – from Pollo Borracho (drunken chicken) to Holy Frijoles (black beans with Oaxacan cheese) – and difficult to choose from.

Their dessert ones – key lime pie (yes, IN an empanada) and banana/nutella – are about as perfect as can be.

Of course, let’s not forget the drinks – the tequila menu is miles long and gets great reviews. Great eats, great find in Raleigh!

    Dessert empanadas? Adding that to my baking list now (since I’m too far away from Raleigh to try one of these)!

  3. WOW just $3!! I’d be there everyday to eat these dessert empanadas! I want to try their key lime pie. Never had such empanadas before… really looks great!
