Our main is the “empanada” but we make also some dishes from the Galician gastronomy, like this awesome “tortilla española” that last year won a prize in a Sydney competition!!!
The main ingredients are potatoes and egg and of course our “liquid gold” the olive oil. We can mix this with different ingredients like onion, chorizo, peppers,…
You can order diferent sizes but the original one is around 1kg and the prize is 25$.
What are you waiting to try it…?
As I already explain before empanada can be made with so many different ingredient inside, everyone has their own way.
These are the variety that you can get from us and for sure if you have any different ingredient that you would love to put inside our empandas please feel free to say it to me and I will try my best to make it.
All the empandas have the “prebe” that is the mix of onions and peppers and then you can get:
Tuna, Scallops, Octopus, Cod fish and raisins, Sardines, Ham and cheese, Raxo(pork loin marinated with wine…), Zorza(pork loin marinated with spanish paprika), Chicken and apple, Chicken and mushrooms, Veggies, Cockle, Chorizo, …also we can make the mass with corn flour.

It´s been a long time when I had the first though of opening a restaurant in Sydney by finally I couldn´t do it for so many reasons that for sure you don´t want to know hehehe!!!
We normally make a lot of parties at home and like a typical Galician house we always have something to cook for our friends; one day I made two empanadas for a birthday, woww in less than 10 min they were gone…, everyone was telling me you should make your business about empanada forget your restaurant heheh!!!
This is how one day I made one for one of my best friends here in Australia, she took it for her family and here we are now selling “Empanada Gallega” in Australia…
The “Galician Empanadas” are known since the time of the Goths in the 7th century where standards are enacted for its elaboration. The Empanada was ideal food for travelers, as a food that avoid stuffy and inner contact with the dusted paths. Galician empanadas are already carved in the twelfth century “Pórtico de la Gloria” in Santiago de Compostela(Galicia). It´s one of the identities of Galicia and a dish that you would find in all the houses, everyone loves Empanada because of the variety of ingredients that you can find inside.
The Empanada dough has flour, similar to that used for making bread, lard, water…and some other tricky ingredients. This dough has a fine texture and sometimes is made with corn flour, known as “Empanada de Millo” very typical in the south of Galicia with the inside made of “zamburiñas” a kind of small scallops.
Empanada is made in a mold with so many diferent shapes. The filling is usually made of different contents as fish, meat, veggies,…, previously made a “prebe” mix of onions and peppers. Once the top is put on the Empanada the mould is introduced in the preheat oven around 45 min. It is usually served in portions and freshly cut just hot or cold as apetizer or tapa.
First of all it is a pleasure for me to share this blog with all of you!!!
With this blog I am going to introduce to you one of the identities of my place Galicia, the “Empanada”.
Galicia is a province of Spain, located in the north-west side just above Portugal. It´s a really awesome place where you can find the best mixture of the mountains and the sea at the same time.
Some of the features of Galician people are to be very kind and friendly and also that we love food, every house that you go in Galicia you will enjoy a traditional dish with the best taste.
It´s not good that I say this but it´s one of the best places to try the Spanish food and I would say the better seafood that you could ever find around the world, said by the proffesionals!!!
I wish you enjoy my blog and also our food!!!!(Pic of Cedeira by Alvaro Arribi)
