best empanada ! – I just love this place - never ever walk away feeling let down . Best empanada in the city !!!!!
Colombian fair trade coffee and empanada shop in Lakeview. – When your Taste of Chicago stand sells 100,000 empanadas in two years, you start to think maybe you should open a restaurant devoted to those piping-hot pockets of joy. That's precisely the idea that occurred to the now-owners of this relaxed, mocha-walled Colombian coffee and empanada shop in Lakeview. Seven varieties of empanadas (from spicy chipotle mozzarella and seasoned ground beef to sweet tooth-sating dulce de leche with banana) fly out of the kitchen, along with other typical Colombian dishes such as cheese-oozing arepas with house-made chorizo. A custom, fair trade coffee blend--courtesy of Metropolis--is the beverage of choice for a diverse clientele, who pull up seats at the rustic-looking dark wood tables.
Starbucks doesnt have empanadas. – All of my friends I've brought to Las Tablas agree that the empanadas here are the best in Chicago, and now that Macondo is open we can get them to go anytime.
The sweet ones go great with the excellent quality coffee.
