Restaurant Review: Empanada Mama

Details: Located at 765 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019. Official site is

I’ve been to two Empanada Mama restaurants and what always surprises me is that this isn’t a hole in the wall. Maybe the franchise was a hole in the wall at one point, but Empanada Mama is full service restaurant with tables, entrees, and a full bar. With that said, I only really come here for empanadas.

I came by and ordered the Jerk N’ Cheese and the Viagra empanadas. I am aware how sexual these empanadas sound. They both costs about four dollars. The jerk n’ cheese is jerk chicken with swiss cheese I think. The Viagra is a seafood empanada. The jerk n’ cheese was okay. I really liked the Viagra though. That’s what she said.

Overall, this place was fine. I might actually come back and try their more expensive entrees. Additionally, they give plenty of green sauce, which is one of the best parts of this restaurant.

Score: 6.5/10
