Our empanadas are baked daily, and made with the freshest ingredients, with no added fillers, colorings or hydrogenated oils. We also make a variety of delicious fat-free salsas that pair perfectly with our large selection of fresh empanadas.
Chef Matthew Hirtz
Matthew Hirtz, who gets some help from his parents Lia and Carlos, World Empanadas is known for baking, not frying, the empanadas, which leads to a fresher, lighter taste. The creative combinations of ingredients and flavors shines here. Hirtz is not afraid to try some pretty wild recipes sometimes – which usually turn out exceptionally well.
