Bushwick’s newest empanada spot is a Columbian bakery from two chefs who met while working at Butter & Scotch in Crown Heights. It’s a colorful cafe with blue and white tiling on the floors and pink paint on the walls, where you can pick up meat and vegetarian options like, chicken, kolache, plantain, and chickpea curry empanadas by the half or whole dozen. They also run a monthly pastry box subscription program, so if you want to get a collection of empanadas, sugar cookies, and other sweets delivered straight to your door, sign up for next month’s box on their website.
