Empanadas get a modern twist at Che Cafe, an East Village nook that formerly lodged Abraço (which moved to larger digs across the street). Tennis-ball-size pouches, called chechenitas, are deep-fried to a golden crunchiness. Steamy savory fillings include chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and smoky chipotle, spinach with feta and rib-eye steak with onions, leeks and cheese. If you crave sweet street food, try the plantain and coconut pocket with raspberry puree and whipped cream.
