What is an Empanada?  As my dad likes to say “its like an apple pie from McDonald’s, but with stuff in it”. Yep, that sums it up.  But let’s get a better definition from Wikipedia:


An empanada is a stuffed bread or pastry baked or fried in many countries in Latin America, Southern Europe and parts of Southeast Asia. The name comes from the verb empanar, meaning to wrap or coat in bread. Empanada is made by folding a dough or bread patty around the stuffing. The stuffing can consist of a variety of meats, cheese, huitlacoche, vegetables or fruits among others.”

And let me tell you, they are awesome.  I recently ate at the, The Original Marini’s Empanada House in Katy.  And I can’t wait to go back.  Their specialty is Empanadas like the name says.  They have Empanadas(Menu) with meat, vegetables, cheese and dessert ones.  And each Empanada is between $1.85 to $3.25, which means they are a great meal and at a great price.  I was very impressed by the friendly service and quality ingredients.  As an example in their Peanut Butter Cup Desert Empanada they stuff it with Ghirardelli chocolate.  My personal favorite Empanada’s are the Italian, Texas barbecue and for dessert the Peanut Butter Cup. 


If you love great food and want something different, you need to run to The Original Marini’s Empanada House.  You won’t regret it!
