Empanada Mama's red and green storefront bursts out from the dingy grays of 9th Avenue, beckoning visitors in for its huge assortment of handmade empanadas. Founder Socrates Nanas has created forty different varieties of this international favorite, stuffing shredded pork, beef or vegetables into wheat or corn husks before a light fry renders them golden and delicious. Clever variations on this staple item include the Polish (sauerkraut and kielbasa) and the Cheeseburger (ground beef and shredded cheese). If the signature dish isn't your thing, Empanada Mama offers an assortment of arepas , a South American corn patty stuffed with pork, beef, chicken or vegetables as well as a number of soups, salads and dessert items. Open all day, every day, Empanada Mama is the perfect stop for a quick bite on the go.
