I found this place by accident after going to the plumbing warehouse down the street. Located just at the beginning of Valencia St restaurant row it is worth a stop. Flaky hot baked empanadas in many meat and vegetarian choices. Their lunch and dinner specials include a salad. Lunch for 2 empanadas, salad and a drink was $8.95. I had the quinoa salad and the server suggested I try the Chimichurri sauce on the quinoa salad. Wow! As a famous chef says it took it up a notch.
I liked the Chimichurri Sauce so much I bought a bottle for home and we are experimenting with it on different dishes. It originally was used on grilled meats in Argentina.
You need to try Venga for a quick bite in the Mission.
