The Empanada Factory | West L.A. | Latin, Latin American | Restaurant

With its firecracker red exterior paint job, the Empanada Factory on Robertson is hard to miss. When you walk in, the tiny store-front – located in an area best described as Cheviot Hills adjacent -- has a few small tables and a cheerful walk-up counter with a few additional seats outside. The menu features classic Argentine empanadas in two sizes and twelve varieties – we are partial to the classic beef and the sweet corn versions, but they are all good and inexpensive enough to sample three or four at a time. The most popular flavors will be in the glass warming case; other choices will have to be warmed up if you want to eat them right then. The Milanesa style sandwiches reflect the Italian heritage of many Argentine people and a preference for very airy breads. One of the true highlights is the rendition of pastel de papa, a South American ground beef and potato pie. Their empanadas are available at their booth at the Sunday Mar Vista farmers market as well.
