Dessert of the Week: Empanadas at Habana
Four small, yet satisfying, empanadas line the plate as well as half of a coconut topped with homemade whipped cream. Although the coconut is a bit out of place, it serves as a holder for the whipped cream and jibes with Habana's mission to create visual appeal for every dish. The restaurant pairs two sweet cream-filled empanadas with two pumpkin empanadas, and it's hard to choose a favorite. The dough is fried to flaky, golden perfection and both fillings have a smooth consistency with a sweet kick.
Pretty much every Latin American culture has its own variant on the empanada; Habana's Cuba-inspired dessert take on the stuffed pastry is sure to please any foodie. Begin your meal by sampling the small plates menu with a few friends and finish it off with the empanadas, also conveniently designed for sharing.
