The great debate, where do you start from? 😊

Absolutely, NanSP.

However, SOMEONE will undoubtably write that they detest empanadas and/or empanadillas.
But I'll have it every day of the week and twice on Saturdays.

I don't. - most of the empanadas I've had in DR aren't fit for human consumption.
My dogs won't even touch them.
The ones I ate in Spain were frigging delicious but here they are just a fried mess.
Maybe there are good ones in SD but on the north coast they are garbage

I used to have a guy in Andres make 2 egg empanadas for me fresh every day. They were awesome. However, we know the oil he's using isn't that good, so I had to give them up. Best 80 pesos ever spent here.

Wow! I’ve never had a bad empanada on south coast, I especially love the cativia (dough made with yuca instead of flour) that they sell on the beaches. Made to order, not sitting there under lights.
A place called Las Empanadas opened several locations in SD that looks great, will definitely try them next time we’re nearby. They look scrumptious, large and stuffed generously.

Those are the best.

I eat them two or three times a week including coffee for 60 pesos and unlike the crap (often left sitting out since yesterday) they over charge you for in Sosua, these are cooked in a small kitchen then delivered fluffy and fresh every morning by 8am.

Good deal!

12 years ago, I had very good shrimp empanadas in Bonao. Expensive but great: RD$100 each

I've got various options in San Cristobal for empanadas. I order them by Pedidosya, and they are still too hot to eat when they arrive.

Like AE, I'm a sucker for the Yuca w/pollo or cheese ones, fried in front of you while you wait.

One of the places I like cooks them with a small amount of oil, and is constantly adding a few ounces or so to keep it fresh.

Always with Picante, and always #1.

Is it any wonder I have weight issues? LOL

If you’re so inclined…… there are a couple of ladies who make the yuca dough discs fresh daily, and sell them mornings on the corners outside the Mercado in San Cristobal.
