grand casino

this oddly named place is an Argentinian-owned bakery/cafe/restaurant near my home in culver city CA. It has mixed reviews but I had a good time there once with an empanada. the empanadas are baked, have a nice filling and are raisin-less. I would have lunch with them again.

when I was in cusco peru this last year, my friend SJ told us to look for a bakery that had baked empanadas and we found it!! those puppy's were very addicting. what was that place called?....they were listed in lonely planet..

turns out I like pastry filled with meat. who knew!!
