Empanada Man brings a little bit of Argentina to Lake Forest

Empanada Man on Urbanspoon

Empanada Man brings a little bit of Argentina to Lake Forest

Located in a strip mall on
Lake Forest Drive
as you make your way south from Foothill Ranch, Empanada Man certainly stands out from the surrounding “fast food” joints. The interior reminds you of a pizzeria. As you walk up to the counter, you are cheerfully greeted and in awe as you try to decide what to get from pizza, to empanadas, to sandwiches. Just like chocolatiers make certain designs for different chocolates, Empanada Man has certain crimping styles for the different types of empanadas. They include a photo legend so you can identify each flavor. It’s an ingenious idea.

Let’s start with the Chorizo and Eggs Empanadas.  They are stuffed with beef chorizo, potato, egg, and jalapenos. The flavor combination is divine! The chorizo melds superbly with the potato and the egg and the jalapeno lending a little spice. Thumbs up with 5 stars!
