Whew!!! The beans and rice were KILLER!!!! I had the spinach empanada - made from scratch and heated in an oven right in front of your face rather than deep fried. It was delicious. I could have eaten 15 of them!!!! The crust was perfect, not too thick or heavy, just enough to hold the contents and very soft and chewy. Much cleaner than other empanadas I've had. Great customer service; very friendly. Neat watching a woman in the front window actually making empanadas on a table. Delicious and inexpensive and satisfying. Wish there were more vegetarian options, but I certainly enjoyed the ones I tried.
A very unique place! We were coming down to shop in a market for Mediterranean foods, and we did a pitstop to walk in uptown for a bit. My husband noticed a few people coming out of Latta arcade so we were curious and walked in. This reminds me of the arcade up in Asheville and its also a historical building. My husband picked up some pizza from pie in the sky just to snack on and I noticed several businesses in Latta Arcade that Id like to visit the next time I am in the area. To experience a bit of history, support some local business-this is a great place to stop by the next time youre in uptown. Have a look at my other reviews. Im about to post about the beautiful green park that is near the old Catholic Church-right in the middle of everything!
Felixs empanadas are so good!! Havent tried one yet that I havent like. Awesome variety of flavors and a go to lunch spot for me
Just grabbed a late lunch here. Bought four different empanadas to try for a first run and they were all very good. All three of the meat options were spot on with consistency/flavors/freshness. The guava and cheese was perfect, not sure I could avoid getting one of those on every visit. Only posting this because I cant stop thinking about it.
This was really gooddd! Didnt expect it be that good. I had the la cubana and it was $5. I would visit here again for sure
