Claudy’s Kitchen is a Peruvian family business that is proud of its heritage and its imperfectly shaped, handmade empanadas, which range from $3-3.50 apiece. Situated on a busy stretch of Broadway in The Bronx, varieties here include chopped rotisserie chicken, chicharron (fried pork belly and salsa criolla), and an empanada verde with spinach, mozzarella, and caramelized onions. Top your order off with their dessert version filled with fresh apples, cinnamon, and caramel.
