You can find a couple of stalls selling the local specialty - the empanadas, deep fried pancake with fillings of shrimps, vegetables and egg), near the vicinity of Plaza Burgos. The empanada is made by rolling out a small piece of dough on the banana leaf and fillings of shrimps, vegetables and egg are placed on top of the flat pastry and then fold-over. The uneven edges are then trimmed off using the edge of the bowl. The ready "puffs" are then deep fried in a hot wok. (see picture attached on process of making empanadas)
Favorite Dish: Empanadas are best eaten when they are hot. The crust is crunchy and the fillings are delicious to the bite. Eat it with the sauce served - vinegar with some chopped onions.
Cost of each empanada : 25pesos.
(Some empanadas could be cheaper or more expensive, depending on the fillings)
