They have a great variety of unexpected combinations. They have dipping sauces and plantain chips instead of boring old chips. My favorite is the chicken pesto and the beef one. The place is small, but has a cool atmosphere. The staff is pleasant and friendly. The prices are not bad at all, and you would be supporting a local business. Win-win all around. If you are in Dupont circle area, come and check them out, they are close to hotel Palomar.

After a long day of site seeing - we just wanted someplace quick but different from what we could get back home. This place definately fit the bill. The empanadas were excellent, and the dipping sauces added to the fun. The big surprise was the delicious glass of white wine (for $6!!). I wish I had asked what it was. Our two favorites (of the 6 we tried) were the roasted eggplant and the steak empanadas.

This was the favorite restaurant of the trip to DC. It's a pretty easy walk from the Dupont Circle Metro station. I can't remember all of the types of empanadas we got, but we loved them all. My favorite was a spinach one and my husband's favorite was a pork one. We both loved the green dipping sauce. The yellow one was super hot! The people behind the counter were very patient and helpful for us newbies.

The yogurt is tangy and a diffrent texture than expected but delicious. With many fruit, cereal, and nut toppings this stuff is awesome on a hot summers day.
