Why we love empanadas at Tango Argentina Food
At Tango Argentina Food, a tiny, family-run takeout spot in St. Charles, empanadas are the only menu item. Fried to perfection, often by owner Hector Aberastury, these golden beauties come in a variety of rotating flavors, from spinach and feta to beef, peppers, onions and olives, and even ham and cheese. Each pocket arrives piping hot, stuffed with molten cheese holding the ingredients together. Try one of each – at only $3 apiece, you won’t regret it.
