Colombian Empanadas

Stuffed with potatoes and beef. A staple Colombian street food.

Colombian Empanadas were one of the first items on our menu at Café de las Américas over 40 years ago. They are a staple Colombian street food and ideal at any time of the day. You can grab them for breakfast on-the-go or eat them as evening appetizers.

Our Colombian beef empanadas are made from cornmeal pastry pockets stuffed with a flavourful beef and potato filling. The empanadas are deep-fried and served with a warm dipping sauce.

The name empanadas come from the Spanish word “empanar​” which means to wrap something in pastry. The origin of empanadas can be traced all the way back to a cookbook published in Catalan, Spain in the 1500s. The triangle pastry was introduced to various countries through colonization, all of which now have their own twist on the deep-fried snack.
