You’ve Got To Try The Creative Empanadas At Empanola In New Orleans

Just about every country has their own version of an empanada. In Russia, you’d know these savory pastries as piroshki. In Italy, the calzone. In South Asia, samosas. Heck, Louisiana even has their own version, better known as meat pies. These delicious turnovers all may have a different origin story, but they all meet at the same point: bread filled with stuffing and then baked or fried. Next time you’re in the mood for a sensational empanada, make your way over to Freret Street where you’ll find Empanola, a fabulous little bakery that’s putting a new spin on the classic empanada.
