If you’re looking for a quick lunch or dinner takeout spot that includes either a gigantic sandwich or a freshly fried empanada, then this is the place for you. We recommend the ropa vieja and the cheese and guava empanadas. Pikalo also has two other locations in Jamaica Plain and Downtown Crossing.
