Katja and Miguel Estremera initially bonded over a shared love of food when they first met in New York City. Both associated food with their families. Katja comes from a Spanish and Peurto Rican background and both Miguel’s parents were born in Puerto Rico. Originally, they started Katja’s Empanadas as part of a fundraiser to send their daughter to Alaska for a school program. The public response was so strong, the couple went pro with their food trailer and now dish up tasty eats across the Philadelphia, PA area.
Katja’s Empanadas serves pretty much any kind of empanada your heart could possibly desire, all made with that flaky, buttery crust empanada fans know and love. You can opt for traditional fillings like beef, chicken, and pork, but the menu also sports an impressive list of specialty empanadas to tantalize your taste buds. These dishes include gourmet flavor profiles. The seafood empanada, for example, is stuffed with fresh crab, shrimp, and scallops seasoned with a ginger-citrus blend of spices. And not all the empanadas are savory, either. You can go for dessert options like a s’mores empanada that mixes the bittersweet taste of hazelnut coffee with sugary sweet marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate. If all this sounds good to you, book Katja’s Empanadas for your next event. Everyone loves a good empanada, and these eats are truly the best of the best.
Mushroom Risotto - The robust taste of mushrooms blended with wild rice and veggies for a healthy, hearty meal.
Guava and Cheese - The rich, nectary taste of guava plus ice cream and caramel pairs wonderfully with some soft, tangy cheese.
