This tiny bakery in the middle of Burbank might not look like much from the outside, but inside something special is happening. World Empanada isn't the most authentic empanada, but it’s definitely one of the best in LA. In a short amount of time, the well-kept little shop (open all day from 8am-7pm) has developed a gigantic following, and it’s because they’re putting their own twist on a classic comfort food, and you’re going to want all of it. Get the Chile Con Carne.
