“mom's favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

Hand made empanadas filled with your choice of beans, potatoes, beef or chicken. They give you two bags of condiments-one sort of a curtido of chopped cabbage handsome salsa. My wife always visits here at least once per trip.

“Breakfast local style!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

Local eating is my style. I'll try anywhere that has a line and looks busy.

Atmosphere--This is a walk-up stand, a true fast food breakfast/lunch place. 30th Ave. and Calle 15. Turquoise stand on northeast corner. You order from a young girl, (daughter?) while the older woman (mom or Abuela) is cooking up the empanadas in a wok. Condiments; pickled cabbage, red hot sauce, napkins etc, are on the counter. Hang out and eat at the counter with all the people. Pay the man (tell him what you had) at the left side of the counter.

Food-- Empanadas and fresh juice-that's all. Freshly made in the kitchen. 4 kinds--potatoes/pappas (yum!), meat/carnitas, beans/frijoles (yum!), and......darn it, I forgot! only 4 to remember and I forgot!.....oh, of course, cheese/queso. You get them HOT HOT HOT out of the wok, be patient and don't burn your mouth.

Value--Breakfast for 2--4 empanadas, and a bottle of fresh squeezed oj was $360P. Don't wait til too late, they sell out.

Really. DO NOT miss this place! We went 2 x this trip, and 2x last trip, but really, if my metabolism was higher, I could eat here every day.

Hours: open early (7?) close sometime around 1, or when they sell out.
