We should have stuck to our order of 1 empanada as we didn’t expect it to be so big! Chicken meat in the empanada was abit dry, but with the spicy sauce they gave, it was pretty good. We also had the Tomato and Mushroom...More

If you want something different from a traditional empanada, this is it, I have never had such big empanadas and such an choice of fillings. These are more than a snack and taste very good as well.
