Eat All of the Empanadas at Jezabel’s Cafe This Week
Next Saturday, April 8th, is apparently National Empanada Day. Obviously, that’s not a real holiday, or even an official one, but it means empanadas for all, and buttery pockets of meat is never a bad thing.
Jezabel’s Cafe, the adorable little thing at the corner of 26th and Pine, is ramping up production for three days leading up to the weekend because chef-owner Jezabel Carega wants to show off her empanada prowess.
Here’s what’s on deck:
- Thursday, April 6: Chilean Empanadas filled with “Pino” – a traditional filling with cubed beef, caramelized onions, black olives, raisins and hard boiled eggs.
- Friday, April 7: Colombian Empanadas made of white corn dough and filled with shredded chicken, seasoned with saffron and tomatoes.
- Saturday, April 8: all-day empanadas (no sandwiches or quiche will be available at the café this day).
- Humita (spicy corn)
- Lentejas (vegan lentils)
- Empanada de Queso (cheese and onions)
