Want a $5 empanada? go to the Bronx

Go Yankees!

A new concession stand at the venerable Yankee Stadium is now offering “Latin food” (though I still don’t know what that means!)

According to a story today in the New York Times, the food at “Salsa on the Go” is prepared by the Bronx-based Salsa Caterers and Special Events, using ingredients and products from Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the country.

What’s funny about the new concession stand is that it, well, stands in the field-level food court in Section 20, in a space where corned beef and pastrami sandwiches used to be sold.

But don’t get too excited about the new flavor addition. The prices are not Bronx-like: $5 for a cheese empanada and $9.75 for a Cuban sandwich.

Whatever happened to the $1 hot-dog?
