|Empanada, translated from Spanish means "wrapped in bread", these delicious little pastries are made by wrapping round pastry dough over a filling, forming a semicircle. Empanadas make tasty snacks any time of the day and are popular throughout Latin America - and growing strong in the United States.
Variations of this kind of portable snack include Italian calzones, Indian samosas, and Cornish pasties. Actually, most cultures have a kind of "pocket" or meat-pie-type dish. Argentina considers empanadas to be a national dish, and they have evolved throughout history to become one of the most popular and well-known Latin American food staples enjoyed in modern times.
Opening Empanadas To Go was a dream Carlos Saccone had ever since he settled in the Chino Valley, over 25 years ago. Together with Leandro De Paul, some family and friends, the restaurant features authentic homemade-style empanadas, sandwiches, subs, pizzas, and a variety of imported products and delicious treats however, the real magic comes from the love, fresh ingredients and Argentinian traditions with which all of the food is made.
