So, yesterday we were researching empanadas and were totally prepared to make our own this evening until we remembered hearing about Max's Empanadas in Little Italy. Max's was a 2010 Best of Baltimore winner for Best Casual Lunch so we knew it was well worth blowing our week's Food Holiday budget to try their empanadas. And based on the photo below, I think you would agree we chose wisely!

Interesting empanada fact: typically, when several types of empanadas are served, a repulgue (or pattern), is added to the pastry fold. These patterns indicate the filling. I am sort of glad I didn't realize that until after we ate all six of these golden, baked gems. It meant each one was another surprise!
Three cheers for National Empanada Day and Max's Empanadas. We're thinking illegible ink will celebrate an Empanada Day every month!
