"Empanadas: ?a must?" San Miguel de Tucumán Local Custom Tip by jalonline

San Miguel de Tucumán Local Customs: 5 reviews and 1 photos


When in Tucuman, you must try ?empanadas?. Basically, it?s a half-moon of light pastry containing beef minced by hand, flavored with scallion, cumin and a bit of chili. Some of them also contain raisins but you can order without them. They?re really delicious (one of the Tucumanos' favorite meals) and quite cheap. Available in almost all restaurants.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
