The empanada kitchen is a little hole in the wall on queenstown lakefront but don't let the simplicity put you off trying one of their ridiculously good empanadas. Every day the menu changes but the quality and flavour stays the same regardless which one you pick!
Perfect steaming hot pastries to warm cold hands
The branding is very cool also
I highly recommend trying at least one
