Lito's Empanadas

Lito’s Empanadas is an extremely tiny place located on Clark St. in Lincoln Park, and it was love at first sight.  When I was on the bus on my way to getting my haircut, I thought I have to stop at this place.  Lito’s sells nothing but eight styles of empanadas, including a choco-banana empanada for those with a sweet tooth.  It’s a great place for street meat food at street meat prices, which range from $2.09 to $2.29.   

I tried the beef empanada, which  contained olives, raisins, onions,
and potato, as well as the chicken, which contained tomatoes, onion,
and rice.  The crust tasted a bit sweeter than a Spanish empanada, and
it was a bit more supple.  Both were good, and I was full for less than
$5.
