What isn’t there to love about empanadas? They are the perfect fast food — deep fried, self-enclosed, and portable, they can be filled with just about anything. Combine this with a friendly fast food storefront, and late night hours, you’ve got the makings of the next great quick-serve restaurant concept — or at least I think so. Raul’s Empanadas in Morristown should definitely be on your A-list of late night snacky stops.

Please don’t eat me! Wouldn’t you rather have a hot dog?
I’m sure the bright and shiny interior is far more appreciated at 3am than 3PM.
Raul’s fills and deep fries at least 20 varieties of empanadas to order, filled with all sorts of combinations of beef, pork, ham, sausage, chicken, shrimp, vegetables, and starches and different spices, including Latino (Cuban, Mexican, Argentine, Columbian, Puerto Rican, Spanish) and unconventional (Cheesesteak, Asian, Italian, etc.) flavors. For example the Puerto Rican is a take on Arroz con Gandules (Ham with Pidgeon Peas and Rice) and the Cuban has all the components of a Cuban Sandwich — chopped ham, roast pork, pickles, melted swiss cheese. I was particulary fond of the “5 sausage with lime” and the “Inferno” empanadas (3 chiles with beef). They’ve even got dessert empanadas, such as the “Adam’s Apple” and Guava Jelly with Cream Cheese.
