We believe an empanada gives an experience, not only of perfect crust and flavorful filling, but also an experience of tradition, a place, and memory that each flavor brings to your table. An empanada brings family
and friends together.
“Yapa” in Quechua and Mapuche means “what is given without an obligation: a gift.” That word felt right to us. It represents what we want to give when people try our empanadas. We want to give a little extra - filling, flavor, good memories, a place, a tradition.
With an empanada we want to share an experience: that’s the extra.
La empanada te lleva a un lugar donde estuviste o donde te gustaría ir.
Yapa Empanadas is not a transaction but an experience (no es una transacción sino una experiencia)
To provide the highest quality of empanadas in the market and to create a memorable experience for our customers in terms of texture, filling and rich taste of our empanadas.
What an excellent empanada. I tried the Spinach & Goat cheese (3 kinds of cheeses, pecans, chard, onions and spinach). They don't skimp on the stuffing, either. It tasted fresh and the flavor was excellent. At $4-$5 it's a good cheap light meal.
