From the empanadas to the dipping sauces, everything at The Empanada Maker is 100% homemade, an extra effort more than apparent in the taste. This truck’s bringing Orange County, CA both classic and innovative takes on this favorite of the Latin American food scene, each and every menu item well worth sampling. This is an establishment avid eaters will want to hit up more than once.
These flaky, buttery shells make the perfect vessel for both sweet and savory fillings. If you’re feeling traditional, there are loads of old-fashioned empanadas stuffed. However, if you’re hoping to shake things up a bit, there are options galore. Grab the all-American classic that is the philly cheesesteak in empanada form, for example, or try an empanada stuffed with chicken verde amped up with some smoky green chillies plus a generous dose of cilantro. Don’t forget dessert, saccharine fillings running the gamut from guava and cream cheese to berry cheesecake. Then grab a house-made dipping sauce to pair with your choice of empanada. Sound delicious? Of course it does, so don’t hesitate to have The Empanada Maker out to cater your next event.
Philly Cheesesteak — Paper-thin slices of beef, sautéed bell peppers and onions, plus a decadent blend of cream cheese and Provolone all stuffed in an empanada shell. Yum.
We made empanadas for friends and family and became the Empanada Makers.
I was a missionary in Argentina. That’s how I learned to make empanadas. I learned how to make them when I came back for friends and family.
This is my passion. I’d been in real estate for 15 years. I just like to see people enjoying food that we cook, see people’s reactions.
Myself, just my passion. Friends and family too.
We were at Disneyland for five months at Downtown Disney. It was a good experience.
