Empenadas and tacos… look for fresh!
If you venture out to the street carts, and you really should, look for the tacos and empenadas (like a fried sandwich) stands. These are fun places to get small bites of food for a good price. Depending on the stand, a taco runs about 9 pesos and so do the empenadas. The tacos are usually cooked to order but the empenadas are sometimes fried up and put into a cooler. They really taste much better when fresh so try to get them right out of the fryer if you can.
You will probably want to get a couple of these at a time but for a few bucks, it’s a tasty meal that you should not miss.
