Once or twice a week, on my way to the train station from work I pass by Havana Central where a table is set up outside selling empanadas for $1 each.
Empanadas are a stuffed bread or pastry; either with vegetables or meat. At Havana Central, they offer a variety of the little fried appetizer. I ordered a broccoli and cheese, a chicken, and a beef. I personally like the chicken the best, (next would the broccoli and cheese). I brought them home in a paper bag. It was hard not to gobble them up during my seemingly long 22-minute train ride home, but they were worth the wait. They were still warm and I inhaled them. While not the healthiest of choices, a $3 dinner ain't bad. It is also pretty filling.
