I plan to go to Buenos Aires because of the filmmaker Ginger and the great job she does. I've watched all her films, fun and informative. I am so happy to find out there is the option of vegetarian empanadas, now my mouth is watering for baked empanadas! Thanks for all films on Argentina, I hope there will be more in the future.

Meat Empanadas are great ... but Americans don't realize that the olive in the empanada has a pit still in it. Bite carefully. I live on these things when I'm in Buenos Aires - one of my two favorite cities in the world for great people and great food - (Florence is the other one).

If you want really great empanadas, the El Sanjuanino in the Recoleta. is your best bet. It is a short walk from the Ricoleta cemetery near the corner of Posados and Callao.

There's a very good empanada place called El Sanjuanino on Calle Posada and Avenida Callao in Buenos Aires. It's a small restaurant where you can eat in or take out. They serve meat, chicken, swiss chard, and corn empanadas as well as pasta, meat and more. It never disapponts.

Oh do we love the empanadas...My daughter and I were there for 1 month in July of 2008! We definitely had lots of empanadas...some were homemade by my relatives who reside in Buenos Aires. Gotta have them! They are traditional and soooo tasty.

there are dozens of vegetarians empanadas... spinach, acelga (kale), corn, tomato and onion, tomato and red pepper, just to name some. Some of them come with egg, so if you dont eat egg you have to ask before. :) sorry for my poor english
