Each delicious, flavour-filled packet is made by hand. First we make unconventional fillings with fresh, high-quality ingredients. Then we wrap it in exceptional dough and bake to a golden perfection. The result is an empanada: a delectable, hand-made creation.
Our recipes are inspired from around the world and each empanada’s name is reminiscent of its origins. For example, when you order a "2. Smith" you might think of the United Kingdom. A bite of a "6. Mariam" has distinctly South Asian taste. Our menu has a broad mix of eccentric tastes so diverse there’s something for everyone and it's always changing with new flavours.
There are four ways to make an order:
1. Catering. Catering orders can be made through our contact page.
2. Delivery. We use a delivery service so we can focus on what we’re best at: making delectable food. There is a $10 flat rate delivery fee with for this service.
3. Pick up. You can also make an order to pick up fresh baked or frozen empanadas and bake them in your own oven.
4. Supermarkets: We have partnered with SPUD.ca and Meinhardt supermarkets.
