DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (CBS) — Empanadas are a popular Spanish and Latin American specialty. They’re easy to hold and even easier to eat. In this week’s Taste With Tori, we introduce you to a woman who learned the art of making them while living in South America. She brought those skills home to Doylestown.
If you’re looking for something golden, flaky and filling in a pinch in Doylestown, find the pink door and you’ve just found the spot for a meal made to fit in your hand — Empanada Mama.
Empanada Mama is where they make little baked pouches bursting with surprises like Mexican street corn, and we have this hometown girl to thank — the mama herself, Kendall Bajek.
She’s been twisting these edges for eight years just after her time in Argentina. During COVID, this was a place many turned to for a quick getaway, but for Bajek, COVID was a time to reflect.
