My husband and I have the privilege to be living for a couple of years now in Nola. Coming from Chile and Argentina respectively.
Inspired by New Orleans stimulating cuisine and our love for cooking, we dreamed of bringing our delicious south American empanadas to town.
Thus, Empanola was born in 2017, allowing us to see our project manifest! Our first search was to come upon the perfect dough for our empanadas. Exploring French recipes, we found the best combination of flaky and tasty crust. Since then, our empanadas are unique and delicious! We started with one location at the Auction House Market and working on our own little restaurant at 7321 Freret St.
In our menu we have 15 different empanadas. All of them Baked! Latin inspired, Nola influenced and lots of vegetarian flavors. Each of them closed in different shapes to distinguish them from each other. Combine our empanadas with sides of salads or soups in our special combos.
We hope to see you all in any of our locations!
