Dorello Pizzas - Empanadas
The best empanadas in town are from Dorello Pizzas & Empanadas located at Cabello 3431 in Palermo.
I wasnít expecting much from this small delivery place, but they certainly surprised me. We ordered a dozen empanadas, four different flavors, and loved every one of them! We tried the chicken (pollo), ground beef (carne), cut beef (carne cuchillo), and the spicy cheese (mexicana). The pollo was very juicy and there were big chunks of onions mixed in with the meat. The bread was so light, crispy and flavorful. Typically I donít like to take the first bite of empanadas because the bread isnít very good, but I could have eaten rolls of this empanada dough. It was much thinner than the crust used at Solo Empanadas.
I really enjoyed the mexicana empanada; it was stuffed with mozzarella cheese and spicy red peppers. I havenít found many spicy dishes in Argentina so it was a nice surprise. My boyfriend used the meat from the carne empanada to turn the mexicana empanada into a kind of taco; it completely satisfied my Mexican food craving!
Another great thing about this empanada place is that the empanadas are rolled differently so you can distinguish what type of filling is inside without taking a bit. The back of the menu shows a picture of 22 different empanadas, each with a unique look. Take a menu home with you so you can pick out your favorite flavors without tasting each one first. They have some interesting flavors to choose from too, like oriental, Mediterranean, Greek and Caribbean.
Dorello also has a wide selection of pizzas. I havenít tried them, but I am sure they are just as delicious as the empanadas. They must cook them over the fire of the brick oven, just like the crispy empanadas. This form of cooking is called Ďpizza a la piedraí, which translates into pizza on the stone.
