Tabulating your bill is a breeze at this tiny Corona cafe where everything costs less than $2. That includes the main course (fried empanadas, made with either spongy corn flour or flaky white flour stuffed with such untraditional fillings as shrimp, spinach and ricotta, and the ever-popular trinity of ham, pineapple, and cheese), and extends to dessert (homemade tropical-fruit ices and dessert empanadas with fillings like nutella, chocolate and sliced bananas).
