About Empanada Lady

The 2009 recession was a blessing in disguise for Cynthia Soto. After 15 years in corporate American, her company let her go. Deciding to pursue new career options, she enrolled in culinary school and started making empanadas for local merchants. However, she soon decided she would rather work for herself, and so Empanada Lady was born. Soto’s food truck has been dishing up homemade empanadas and other cuisines throughout the Jersey City, NJ area ever since.

There is no shortage of empanada flavors at the Empanada Lady. They range from traditional meats and veggies to more contemporary flavors like chipotle chicken and cheese pizza. Plus, there are loads of sweet empanadas for dessert like apple pie, guava and Nutella, and more. While Soto is certainly best known for her empanadas, her truck also sells traditional Caribbean dishes, chicken wings, and sliders. If you’re booking an event, you could certainly provide a diverse range of food choices for your guests if you book with Empanada Lady. Guests will love these tasty, authentic foods.
