EMPANADA. Ever since I was a kid, I would always have some snack from my mom's bag. Hence, the name Food in The Bag. One of them being Empanadas. It's basically a whole meal in itself.
No wonder, PASTRY AMOIRE created some and wanted to share it to everyone. From the creators of amazing desserts, 6 different kinds of empanadas greeted me as I returned back home. BEEF QUESO PMODORO, CHICKEN ALA CREMA, PORK BALSAMICO ADOBO, SPICY SPANISH CHORIZO, SMOKED SARDINES PATE and SPICY TINAPA in TOMATO SAUCE.
I would have to say that I enjoyed the Spicy Tinapa. It had a little kick in it and was also a little smoky. In general, the empanadas were flaky and had the right kind of crust. It was actually filing and quite heavy for me. After a couple, I couldn't take it anymore. I would suggest that you eat them fresh and right off the box. If not, place them in the ref and have them in the toaster for a few minutes.
BUT, PASTRY AMOIRE is known more for their buns. I would suggest that you get one with the chocolate chips on top. Moist, and super chocolatey. Perfect to nuke them in the microwave or toaster then add a scoop of ice cream. Deadly. Don't get me started with the one covered with bacon.
