Empanadas Kristina Tripkovic



What is an Empanada?

According to the Farmers Almanac, "Empanadas are a Spanish or Latin-American pastry turnover filled with savory ingredients that are either baked or fried." Empanadas are delicious and have a nice savory taste. They kind of remind me of perogies, but are filled with meats as opposed to just potato.

There is a brand new Argentine empanada eatery that has opened in Tuckerton. It's called Lokotas Argentine Empanadas and from the few times, I have driven by I see lots of customers in the shop.

Lokotas is located in Downtown Tuckerton on Route 9 and North Green Street, next to the Dynasty Diner. If you are looking for a different type of taste why not try out Lokotas Argentine Empanadas?
