It seems like empanadas are becoming as ubiquitous a pastry as sriracha is a condiment, with nearly everyone from Casa de las Empanadas to Tako Cheena offering up their own takes on the cute-and-tasty hand pies. One thing you can count on, though, is that La Empanada food truck will have a variety that you’ve never tried. Whether it’s the savory BBQ chicken & gouda, the rib-sticking tomato-basil mac & cheese or the gringo-riffic meatloaf & mashed potatoes, taking advantage of La Empanada’s three-for-$9 special will have you entering a gastronomic dreamscape both familiar and exotic. Or maybe just slipping into a food coma.
