Empa Mundo Guava and Cheese Empanada

Empa Mundo Guava and Cheese Empanada

December 7, 2017

Empa Mundo is a husband and wife operated restaurant located on the western side of Irving. Central to the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex Empa Mundo has been serving up tasty empanadas and alfajores to devoted fans of the likes you might see wandering the streets of old town Buenos Aires. The focus here is solely on empanadas with a sweet nod to alfajores to finish out a satisfying meal of Argentinian comfort food.

All empanadas are $2.99 each making them the deal of the century if you’ve ever spent the time to make these at home. Well worth the price of entry. Empa Mundo serves 18 flavors of empanada, plenty enough to satiated the pickiest of eaters. I’ve dined at Empa Mundo on multiple occassions as of this writing and I have to say I’ve absolutely loved every single flavor of empanada I’ve had. On this particular visit I started round one with my favorites the Criolla and the Humita. The Criolla is filled with ground beef, onions, olives, raisins and eggs. Perfectly balanced between savory and a hint of sweet this perfectly prepared empanada is moist and packed full of flavor. Along with it I had the Humita which is filled with corn, onions, cheese and white sauce. My nod albeit a weak one to something vegetables this empanada is also packed with flavor, ooey gooey to use a technical term and perfectly prepared as well. I won’t go into detail on the other rounds ordered but I also had the Chilipanzinga, Chicken Gordon Bleu and Chorizo empanadas and all were equally good in their own right. I even purchased a few Guava & Cheese and Nutella & Banana “to go” for breakfast the next morning. Fresh or leftover Empa Mundo is dishing out some tasty treats.

Service is counter service. You take a glossed menu and wax pencil and write your order down and present it at the counter where it is prepared fresh to order. Attire is casual; shorts and a t-shirt are more than enough to get you in the door of this very casual, strip center location. There is plenty of parking available in the lot in front of the restaurant. Empa Mundo allows BYOB so if you’re dining in be sure and bring a bottle of your favorite Malbec and enjoy a glass over a couple of rounds of empanadas. Don’t forget to bring your own stemware.

Empa Mundo: highly recommended for those seeking their empanada and alfajore fix.
