I first went to Queenstown in 2017 and one of my favourite meals was a pork and apple empanada, which I ate, sitting on the grass on the waterfront. I just went back to Queenstown and was so happy to go back for seconds! This time I had a fragrant lamb and a pork and prune empanada, with delicious chilli sauce. The people are lovely and the food is simple and delicious. Much easier to eat than a pie and the pastry is like your grandmother would make. They have interesting flavours and it is such a nice snack to eat by the water. I tell everyone to go there! Jennifer, Australia

This a little pop up food stall. I was in a hurry so I grabbed a couple of Ham and Mozzarella Cheese Empanadas. They were $6 each. They are similar to a pastie shape. Delicious! Lovely flakey pastry but not messy to eat.Yum. They are baked freshly each day.

If you’re in Queenstown and a bit peckish after rafting/jetboating/lugeing/bungy jumping or whatever gets you hungry then you’ve got to try the empanadas at The Empanada Kitchen on the lakefront.
