63. Empanadas at Go-Go Fresh Food Cafe

Once upon a time, empanadas were delicious little pies filled with sweet fruits or savory meats. The townsfolk of Miami loved them, but a wicked queen mass produced them and sold them in gas stations. The people stopped buying the little pies and they got stale and sad.

One day, the Go-Go Fresh Food Cafe fairy godmother baked fresh empanadas daily, stuffed with dozens of yummy fillings like chicken pot pie, ham & cheese, Argentine beef, eggplant parmigiana, and guava & cream cheese. The people craved the little half-moon shaped pies and they all lived happily ever after. The end.

The moral of this story? Go-Go Fresh Food Cafe makes delicious empanadas in over a dozen varieties daily -- and they're only $2.25 each. That may seem like a fairy tale -- but it's a true story.
