and furthermore, if one of your bffs is in town and you need a midday empanada...

put on some billy joel
and head downtown (well, downtown for me)
to el centro on 54th

me + bestie brian = eternal luv

i had goat cheese empanadas
and a tamale
(apparently i still can't manage to get over dumpling binge)
bestie brian had a chilaquile

not only did their food totally hit the spot,
but the chochkies on the wall were also totally cute.

oh... and mike tyson walked by, mid-empanada.
