Empa Mundo Coupons and Deals
Scout Notes: Spanning the globe looking for on-the-go snacks is an overwhelming prospect. Every country has, at some point, thought to cram something delicious into an edible wrapper and call it “a quick lunch.” The Brazilians have the pastil. The Italians have the panzerotti. The Americans have the, um, Hot Pocket? Just kidding (kinda) because we’re a melting; we have it all, including the handcrafted Argentine empanadas churned out by Raul and his wife Mimi at Empa Munda. And when we say "handcrafted," we mean it. Raul and Mimi make EVERY SINGLE EMPANADA themselves. Luckily, the process is deceptively simple: using a special dough Raul created himself, the duo stuffs the empanadas with one of a host of housemade fillings and then fries them to order. But with simple technique comes complex flavors. The Criolla Empanada, the most traditional selection on the menu, is a savory blend of beef, onion, olives, raisins, and egg and it works. Similarly successful, especially if your tastes lean a little closer to home, is the Texas Brisket Empanada—it'd make any cowboy proud.
