Empanada City is a family owned and operated business that opened its doors on May 5, 2017 in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens section of Brooklyn. Since opening, it has quickly grown to be a local favorite due to its great selection of empanadas, smoothies, and desserts.
The Rodriguez and Almonte families are introducing empanadas that are infused with spices and flavors from our native Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic. Creating an unmistakable blend of meat, cheese, vegetable, and fruit filled empanadas that are unique. Accent them with our three homemade dipping sauces that promises to keep you coming back for more. We use the same recipes that have been enjoyed by many over the years at family gatherings and during the holiday season, and we are excited to now be sharing them with you.
In addition to our empanadas, we invite you to try one of our refreshing smoothies made with all natural fruits and juices. You can ask for it by name Brianna’s Banana Berry, Jessica’s Mango Smoothie, Sonia’s Pineapple, and Gabby’s Strawberry Banana. Lastly we have Morir Soñando which is an island favorite. It is a blend of Carnation Milk and Orange Juice which literally translates to “Die Dreaming” – its that good!
If that wasn’t enough, we have three delicious flavors of flan – vanilla, chocolate, and coconut to finish off your meal. With your dessert, we offer Brooklyn Roasting Company Mexico blend coffee, assortment of tea, and hot chocolate.
You can see our full menu online as well as order for pickup or delivery. There is nothing we enjoy more than meeting our guests and hearing from you directly, so we hope to see you in our shop located at 363 Lincoln Road, Brooklyn, NY 11225.
