Similar to the Italian calzone but usually smaller, the Empanada is a fried or baked pastry which originates from the Iberian peninsula in Europe and is popular in the Caribbean and Latin America.
Empanadas are stuffed with any number of fillings, which include Picadillo (ground and spiced meat), chorizo sausage, chicken, vegetables and even cheese and fruit pastes such as guava.
Sushi and Sashimi is without question the most beloved cuisine among the elite Twitterati and geeks throughout the technology industry. But
it requires a certain degree of finesse in order to eat.
However, Temaki Sushi, which are conical-shaped and wrapped in nori seaweed, are ideal for one-handed consumption.
The most popular configurations are spicy tuna, negitoro and crispy salmon skin.
For those of you on a budget, try Temaki's blue-collar cousin, Onigiri. These are rice balls wrapped in nori sheets which are stuffed with fillings such as tuna fish, salmon and other ingredients such as pickled plum.
A variant in Hawaii known as Spam Musubi are rice squares topped with -- you guessed it -- grilled slices of America's favorite processed pork product and then wrapped in nori.
Hamburgers are the most popular sandwich items in America, if not the world. But most of them are too big and are far too unwieldy for single-handed consumption.
However, there is a solution -- the slider, the "Mini-Me", square version of the hamburger, which are cooked on large griddles in their own grease along with finely chopped onions, and laid onto small square steamed buns and packed into small paper boxes, which can easily be stacked into paper bags not unlike gun ammunition, ready to be fired into one's digestive system.
In the United States there are two large fast food chains which specialize in Sliders -- White Castle and Krystal. Both of who's products are almost indentical, but with a minor difference -- the White Castle is by default topped with ketchup and the Krystal has mustard.
Neither chain has store locations which can be found within proximity of each other, as if they have carved the United States into a
mini-burger war zone.
