I was in the mood for a light snack instead of a big dinner so I walked over here and tried the Cuban pork and a chicken empanada. They were very good, with a flaky crust and an excellent flavor. I'd try them again.

Not traditional empanadas, but oh so good! A wide variety of fillings; something for all tastes. Served with a variety of sauces and yummy plantain chips. Fresh fruit juices are offered and are a refreshing change from water or soda. Friendly and fast service, too....More

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.
