Rincon Argentino

Paying a visit to Rincon Argentino can be one of those exhausting experiences where you go in looking for one thing and instead walk out with enough snacks to last you an entire hibernation period. But this small shop in Glendale really has it all, from a stacked wine selection to a great butcher shop, and even pastries like dulce de leche-filled alfajores. Their empanadas are also a must, with their sweet and savory chicken empanada deserving a gold star. These shiny, egg-washed hand pies balance out the savory meat, olives, and hard-boiled egg with the sweetness of raisins and caramelized onions, and they're nothing short of sublime. Make sure to also try the shop’s fugazzeta, which is Argentina’s answer to stuffed-crust pizza. Besides the generous amounts of ham, cheese, and cooked onions on top, the dough is filled with more ham and cheese, just as it should be.
