Empanada Shop was a Colombian-style eatery in Monroe Village. They specialized in empanadas and offered many varieties, including pork mango, steak & shrimp, Buffalo chicken, Philly cheese steak, shredded beef with plantains, and even a Garbage Empanada. They also had dessert empanadas and other options for sides and full dinners, including arepas.

2015-06-02 11:50:33 The empanadas are incredible (my favorites so far are the steak & shrimp and the pork mango) and the interior of the restaurant is lovely! —KiraK
2015-09-27 17:05:18 The empanadas and side dishes here were good, and there were many flavors and types to try, including a bunch of dessert choices. Be advised that the empanadas here are deep-fried, which does make them a bit greasy. I wish that someone around here would make baked empanadas, like the ones I've had in South America, which are just as good and not as greasy. That said, I will be back for another sampling soon ! —DottieHoffmann
2015-12-17 10:25:41 Went for the first time Wednesday 12/16 and got the 5 Empanadas for $15 special. (Normally they are $3.50 each.) I chose Chicken/ Pork Mango/ Beef & Cheese/ Basura/ Shredded Beef. They were bigger than expected, especially compared to the 3-4 other places I've had Empanadas in town. Each was extremely rich, flavorful, and filling. I was stuffed after the first two but crammed a third into my stomach before I had to call 'uncle'. I reheated the other two for dinner. I'm looking forward to going back again soon and trying some of the other Empanada flavors. I'm especially anxious to order from their 'dinner' menu as well. An extremely welcome addition to the neighborhood. —ZedOmega
