What You'll Get
The practice of stuffing one food item with another gained popularity in the '20s, when restaurants began serving bananas hidden in bags of flour. Munch on a modern take on stuffed cuisine with today’s Groupon at Half Moon Empanadas in Miami Beach. Choose between the following options:
• For $6, you get $12 worth of homemade empanadas and other menu items.
• For $14, you get a dozen homemade empanadas (a $30.25 value).
Half Moon’s sundry slew of 19 empanadas are baked from scratch daily, using fresh ingredients and a secret dough recipe that nabbed them the honor of Best Empanadas from the Miami New Times in 2009. Served regular or spicy, Half Moon’s Argentinian–style chicken and ground-beef empanadas enclose a medley of onion, pepper, and egg in artisanal dough ($2.49/single, $13.95/half dozen), creating flavors more melodious than a deep-fried clarinet. Other edible pouches combat raucous belly bellows with creamed corn and béchamel sauce (the corn); bacon, cheese, and herbs (the bacon cheeseburger); and more. Half Moon's menu also includes crispy french fries that cloak themselves in gooey cheese ($2.55) and deep-fried pasteles, which provide a fitting epicurean epilogue to stuffed stomachs ($1.75/single, $9.50/half dozen).
Diners can also design their own dozen empanadas, forging an appetizing spread ideal for feeding freeloading foodies and traveling circus troupes. Half Moon’s red-and-white interior, cubed dangling lights, and relaxing armchairs provide an atmosphere fit for counting sheep jumping over an empanada moon.
