Empanadas are named after the

Spanish verb 'empanar' which means

to coat or wrap in bread. 

An empanada is a fried or baked turnover in the shape of a half-moon made with flour dough or corn flour dough. You can stuff it with any

number of things.

We make ours in various flavors: Beef, Chicken, Cheese, Mexican Chorizo, Lobster, Crab & Apple Cinnamon and enclose them in flour dough.


Empanadas are thought to have  originated in Galicia, Spain. However, you will find that they are made by different cultures & go by various

names. These are a few of the known names: 


Meat Pies (American)

Empanadas (Latin Spanish)

Pastelillos (Latin/Spanish)

Pastelitos (Latin/Spanish)

Empanadillas (Latin/Spanish)

Beef Patties (Jamaica)

Samosa (India), 
Empadinhas (Brazilian)

EG empanadas are unique with a mixture of Caribean & Mexican spices with a touch of Southern heat. We have taken the traditional & given it the

EG twist. As a result we've been told

time & again that they are addictive.


Thank you for stoping in, please

And...


Let the addiction begin!
