Something You Should Eat: Empanadas and alfajores at Buenos Aires Liquors & Deli

July 13, 2010

Buenos Aires Liquors and Deli is the kind of place you drive by a hundred times and never think twice about stopping to go inside. It's on a busy stretch of Cicero Avenue, for one thing; the requisite lottery sign and dingy awning don't help. But once you walk in, past the racks of imported malbec and yerba mate, tucked back in the deli, there are some of the best savory empanadas and sweet alfajores you will ever find.
