Bodegon 71: Try the Juice, Arabian Empanadas, and Dulce de Leche Conitos
I've already declared my love for dining in North Beach and Normandy Isle, and now there's a new favorite spot in the neighborhood. Bodegon 71 offers seemingly endless empanadas, along with juices, smoothies, decadent desserts, and much more.

This family-run restaurant is still waiting for a wine and beer license, but in the meantime, I've tasted a majority of the items on the menu. And virtually every dish and juice shines.
What first appears as simply a window selling empanadas is actually far more extensive. This eatery offers a ton of healthful options and Argentine staples.
The juice options are a bit limited, but you can mix and match up to three ingredients for a variety of combinations.
This grapefruit, carrot, and celery blend cost $3.99. Even better is they will most likely juice more than fits in your cup, so if you stay and sip, you can get a free refill.
The Spanish tortilla ($5.99) was irresistible and massive, filling an entire plate with its fluffy, eggy, frittata-like form chock full of tomatoes, potatoes cut like fries, onion, and red pepper. Other tortillas feature chorizo.
