Empanada's Place

Spicy Chicken, Beef Criolla, Potato Cheese... Sounds good so far... Now, take those things and wrap them in a tasty dough and fry up until golden brown. You've got Empanadas! Lately, I've been finding my Empanadas at Empanada's Place in Culver City. This tiny restaurant always seems packed at lunch, but the owner says some days it is, some days it isn't. I would recommend it either way, because you can always get your empanadas to go. Cocktail size empanadas are available by the dozen for about $15. Regular sized Empanadas are about $3 a piece and I find two to three to be plenty. The guys I lunch with sometimes get 5 but are stuffed at the end of the meal. They just can't resist the different flavors. Each flavor of empanada is crimped in a different way so you can identify what is inside. I love the care taken in making these Argentinian treats.

Empanada's Place has two other locations, one in Tarzana and one in West Hollywood. I've never been to the others, but the Tarzana location offers live tango music on Thursdays. Here are the addresses. The Culver City restaurant can be found on the Family of Food Map.
