What is an Empanada?

Empanada Guy is one of the fastest growing Gourmet Food Trucks in NJ. We not only specialize in empanadas but other Spanish dishes. In 2014 we opened our 1st EG Restaurant in Freehold, NJ.

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 them with any

number of things.

We make ours in various flavors:

Beef, Chicken, Cheese, Mexican

Chorizo, Lobster, Crab & Apple Cinnamon and then 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)

Pate (Haitian Creole)​

Pastel (Portuguese)
Pastel de Forno (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

Let the addiction begin!
