Julia's Empanadas is the only carry-out restaurant chain in DC that specializes in empanadas, which are handmade, mildly spiced, freshly baked sandwiches. The best part is that they carry a vegan flavor every day! Today, their vegan filling consisted of lentils, carrots, broccoli, chickpeas, and potatoes stuffed in dough made with curry and squash. Delish!
They are very filling and if you pair it with one of their fresh salads like the tomato or beet salad, you have a complete meal! I've always been a big fan of this dive. And, hey for $3.49 each, you really can't go wrong.
