More Bakery Case Attractions at Rustika

It took me a long time to notice the jalapeño gefilte fish and the other Mexican-Jewish items on the menu at Rustika Bakery because I was distracted by the bakery display case. I have already written about the amazing dulce de leche-filled alfajores I found here. But wait until you try the empanadas.

Instead of the thin empanada pastry found in the Argentine version, Rustika's Mexican empanadas are made with a thicker dough that creates a light, bready crust. The empanadas are huge. I sampled the chicken and ground beef versions, and both were tasty. I need to get around to trying the chicken mole empanadas soon.
