Empanadas in San Fernando Valley Area

I am looking for a place with good Empanadas in the San Fernando Valley area...a place with empanadas similar to Empanda's Place in West L.A on Sawtelle that serves good fried empanadas.

I have been to Johnny's Pacific in Winnetka , but it has been maybe a year or two . I know a lot of people recommend it but I didn't find them to be as good as Empanadas place.

Any suggestions?

  1. A couple of weeks ago I tried the empanadas at Mercado Buenos Aires on Van beef and one cheese and spinach...excellent...juicier and bigger than the empanadas on Sawtelle and the cafe on Main St(Grand Casino?) in Culver City...

    Mercado Buenos Aires
    7540 Sepulveda Blvd, Van Nuys, CA

      Thank you, Yes I have been there and I should of mentioned that. They are quite good and pretty reasonable, but I am looking for some that are more fried like the ones at Empandas Place if anyone knows of a place. Thanks!
