Free Empanadas on Friday!

Yesterday I wrote about a new gourmet empanada spot, Panas that soft opened in Dupont Circle at 2029 P St, NW. Just got an email saying you can sample the goods for free on Friday. They write:

“To mark the opening day owner Federico Garcia Lopez will offer one free empanada from 11 am until 1 pm.

Panas specializes in Latin fusion gourmet empanadas, the crescent-shaped turnovers, stuffed with a variety of well-seasoned meats, vegetables, spices, fruits, and sweets. Signature recipes are inspired by the Latin Fusion cuisine; a culinary concept that combines traditional and modern gastronomic techniques with different ingredients from across the Americas.

The 1,100 square-foot restaurant is tiny with just 13 seats and bright with a mustard colored wall highlighted with green field turf. Serving in-restaurant, carry-out and delivery the Panas menu includes $2 empanadas ranging from meat, pork, chicken and ham filled delicacies like the Chipotle Steak with shredded sirloin steak, onion and chipotle sauce to vegetarian selections like the Popeye with sautéed spinach, onions, raisins and goat cheese. Side salads with a Latin flair are also on the menu – the primavera with red pepper, corn, cilantro and black beans is a favorite as is the jicama salad with lettuce, mango and carrots.”

  • You’d better get there early to get THE free empanada.

  • WOW. Had this for dinner – I have a new favorite fast restaurant. These empanadas are SERIOUSLY tasty. Omg. We had all 5 veggie empanadas, favorites the spinach/raisin and the corn/artichoke.

    I literally may head back there tonight for seconds, and for dinner tomorrow. Five stars.

    love that we have a few great argentinian food joints – the other being the gelato place in georgetown which is similarly phenomenal.

  • These empanadas are great. Also the gelato place Eric mentioned has opened a new store in Dupont as well. so you can now go to dupont for both argentine empanadas and gelato.
