I’ve never met an EMPANADA I didn’t like…

Rounding out the specials menu honoring Cinco de Mayo, Chef Matt is cooking up empanadas muy deliciosas!  Typically empanadas are pretty basic – either beef or chicken.  But not at Pier 23 Cafe the premier seafood restaurant on the SF waterfront.  Chef Matt has created a special ROCK SHRIMP EMPANADA served with a habanero chile and shrimp dipping sauce.  The heavenly crust is both pillowy and crisp to the  bite.  But the ultimate reward truly is the succulent rock shrimp filling tucked inside. When dipped into the fiery habanero and shrimp sauce your taste buds will be singing LA BAMBA!
