Cinco de Mayo is around the corner so we are going to be gearing you up so you are ready.

One of my personal favorites for this holiday is EMPANADAS!

So, where should you make sure you try in South Jersey? We have the answer...

Mambo Café

226 S. Main Street, Pleasantville

(609) 484-1200

This restaurant/spacious bakery has a nice range of option but for all that is good and pure, try their empanadas. Their beef and potato is "standard-sized" but there beef empanadas and chicken empanadas are HUGE so that is the direction I would plan to go if I were you.

Empanada Mama

These empanadas can be found at Ostara's in West Cape May, the Habitat for Humanity Restore Café in the Cape May Courthouse, and the Linwood Farmers Market. But these are not your typical empanadas: you can choose from ginger and dill, pork and provolone, and pineapple and guava just to name a few.

Did we miss anywhere in South Jersey that you consider a must-try? Let us know!
