We walked from Pearl Street Mall in downtown Boulder to Rincon Argentino. It took 30 minutes but was worth every single step. I had never tried empanadas before, and after this meal, i'm obsessed. The exterior is so flaky and their many fillings are amazing. Since it was my first time, I tried the tradicional with steak, onions, and red pepper. It was super yummy and paired with the mild chimichurri sauce mmm perfection. We ordered a bunch of other others so bare with me as I talked about them all :P
If you like spice, the carne picante is a great fit. It's the traditional empanada, but full of spice. The pollo barbacoa is another meaty must. It's stuffed with tons of chicken and luscious BBQ sauce. the jamon y queso reminded me of a breakfast crossiant with its ingredients of flaky crust, ham and cheese. Another super cheesy one is the caprese. There's a great 10/10 cheese pull that comes with the caprese. For some relatively healthier vegetarian options, I really enjoyed the choclo and hongos. The choclo is super creamy with bits of crunchy corn. As for the hongos, there are excellent, tender mushrooms inside. There are a ton of empanadas at Rincon Argentino and you can't go wrong with any of them.
