#TheGrind: If it Wasn’t for the Bronx

We’re back in the Bronx for this week’s installment of #TheGrind, *cues Deja Vu (Uptown Baby).* Good food can be extremely hard to come by especially if you’re unsure about what you want. Good thing these Latin American spots have a large selection of deliciousness to choose from for a very lit lunch.

Empanology

Empanology is the restuarant you never knew you needed in the Bronx. It’s easily becoming a staple in the community especially during the warmer months where the huge outdoor space is as inviting as the food. Empanology is your go to for some of the best empanadas, hands down. A fan favorite is the red velvet. See below their varying hours of operation:

MONDAY – WEDNESDAY: CLOSED
THURSDAY: 3PM – 10PM
FRIDAY: 2PM – 12AM
SATURDAY: 1PM – 12AM
SUNDAY: 1PM – 8PM

2407 Third Ave
Bronx, NY 1045107
(718) 215-1107

Sabrosura 2

Now Sabrosura may be a little too heavy for your lunch break but here’s the thing, even lunch specials can turn into dinner or a snack for that midday crash that sneaks up on most of us around 2pm. This classic Latin American restaurant fuses traditional Caribbean dishes with their own spin on Latino, Chinese, and American seafood. Can you say, variety?

1808 Westchester Ave
Bronx, NY 10472
(718) 502-9878

La Masa

It’s only right that we include a spot that’s known for their pastelitos. Among other amazing dishes that La Masa serves, you will leave here full and very happy. Even more takeaways, they offer vegan, dairy, and gluten free options! Feeling adventurous, try their roasted eggplant empanada.

1000 Morris Park Ave
Bronx, NY 10462
