Empanada Day in Philadelphia
South Street Headhouse Districts Puyero Puyero Venezuelan Flavor, recently opened at 524 S. 4th Street, celebrates National Empanada Day by adding three types of Venezuelan empanadas to their menu Saturday, April 8th and Sunday, April 9th.
“Empanadas are a big part of Latin American culture, and Venezuelan culture is not the exception,” said co-owner Simon Arends. “Venezuelan empanadas are fried and usually made with cornflour, like the arepas, as cornflour is one of the most important ingredients. Corn flour makes them a bit sweeter. At Puyero, we have also added touch to the mix. Our empanadas will be made with plantain dough and also yuca dough.”
They will sell empanadas at Puyero in pairs of two for $5.00 each. The three varieties include yuca dough filled with cheese, plantain dough filled with beef, and cornflour dough filled with fish.
Uptown in Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, Revolution Taco, at 2015 Walnut Street, puts their inventive and modern twist on classic empanadas with three varieties for the weekend: spinach and fontina with salsa Roja, bacon and date with honey and toasted almonds, and roast onion and cheese fondue with roasted garlic parmesan cheese dipping sauce.
