With QQ Mermaid Fashion as a very close second, Corner Frenzy! (I like to add the exclamation point) is the best named local business.
It’s also one of the most unusual in a hood packed with unusual (several local store fronts seem to feature nothing but a rotating collection of dirty carnival stuffed animals and cardboard boxes).
It’s primarily a laundromat, part ice cream shop, part smoothie spot and part empanada restaurant.
We’ve enjoyed the soft serve but why, oh why did it take me so long to get their empanadas?!
For a mere 4.50 I ate like a king.
Each filling: chicken, beef bean and rice and cheese was distinct and delicious.
The menu varies day to day, consisting of what they have made, but don’t worry it’s all tasty.
I’ve never been the hugest empanada fan but that’s because rarely are they so perfectly soft and doughy.
Be sure to say yes to the hot sauce, a homemade concoction of tongue tingling yumminess. She should bottle this stuff and add it to the store’s list of goods.
Probably the best deal around and with the most friendly service too!
