At Calavera they do two things, empanadas and tequila! Opening in Sept. of 2011, and what was once "the little empanada place on the corner," has become one of downtown Raleigh's must stop spots. Choose from 11 varieties of empanadas and up to 40 tequilas—30 on the menu, plus whatever exotics they have in that week. Cala Vela takes pride in using the freshest ingredients in not only the food, but the cocktails as well. Whether you're a seasoned empanada aficionado or just curious to find out what these little baked treats are all about, Calavera looks forward to seeing you soon!
