Description: Panas specializes in Latin fusion gourmet empanadas, crescent- shaped turnovers, stuffed with well seasoned combinations of meats, vegetables, spices, fruits, and sweets. Our recipes are inspired by the idea of Latin Fusion cuisine; a culinary concept based on creating new recipes by combining traditional and modern culinary techniques and mixing ingredients from different countries in the Americas. The only empanadas’ tradition we want to preserve is that empanadas a great idea and fun package for food.

“Excellent empanadas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Panas is a small eatery that has a selection of emapanadas combos. You can choose from a variety of vegetarian, meat and sea food empanadas served with various sauces. I tried all vegetarian and chicken empandas and the tuna empanada. All excellent. Highly recommended for fans of Latin American food.

“Not fancy, but tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The setting is basic: plain tables and chair, order at the counter. The food is great, however, and they would probably charge twice as much to add more ambience and service!

“Yummy food, fast and supper friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Had the carne and the pork. Can't decide which I like better, but both were excellent! For what it is, a cute, clean place, with fast service and good prices, it couldn't be better.

“Great Empanadas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We took some empanadas back to the room and re-warmed them which isn't the best way to evaluate food but they were still very tasty. While waiting for our order we saw the other food which looked and smelled delicious. Worth a try.
