Nuchas Artisan Empanadas


With multiple convenient kiosk locations throughout the city, Nuchas’ slow-braised short rib and vegan shiitake curry empanadas are some of the most inventive we’ve ever had. Baked to perfection and perfectly braided, the empanadas here are both soft and simultaneously crunchy with a particularly impressive repulgue. They also have many vegan and vegetarian options, including the miso ginger-roasted Korean pumpkin, which is a delicious surprise. Nuchas empanada packs are available for nationwide shipping and can be ordered online here.
