This little eatery has a huge variety of empanadas to satiate any palate – not just your usual beef or cheese that you usually get at most Latin eateries. Everything from Empanada Reggaeton (caribbean style roast pork with sofrito seasoned yellow rice and grandules) to the Polish Empanada with sausage and sauerkraut. This place epitomizes fusion cuisine with American Empanada stuffed with hot dog and American cheese or how about a Beef and Broccoli Teriyaki Empanada?
In addition there are soups, salads arepas and unique tapas like cassave (yuca) stuffed with beef and pork. And traditional Latin meals served with rice and beans like Pollo Guisado and Chuleta Epanizada.
All natural cooking – no trans fats and the empanadas are all made with whole wheat or corn flour. $2.50 for most of the empanadas – the most expensive is the Viagra, stuffed with a seafood stew. These empanadas are truly stuffed – For $5.00 you can have a delicious lunch and be full until dinnertime. They deliver, so the next time you want to eat in for lunch, I highly recommend Empanada Mama.
