Back in the spring of 2019, this Dominican bakery on Victory Boulevard opened with a menu of things like sweet maduros filled with meat, big plates of pernil, and smoothies. Now, you can stop by their store for pick-up and eat at one of the seat-yourself tables outside. If you’d rather be alone with your empanadas at home, you can always place your order for takeout or delivery online or by calling 718-816-1500.
