In search of...

Meat and or fruit/cheese filled empanadas in/near Pomona/Chino area, the Covinas, East SGV, or IE. I already know about Portos, all of them and Driving to East Valley or ELA or Glendale not always an option.

Maybe a Mexican/Latino bakery that might make them. Those of you who have had empanadas know what I'm talking about.

Looking forward to fruitful replies.

        It's a market... a few supplies, meat counter, soda case, deli, and great empanadas. I'd definitely give it a shot. The only knock I have with them is it seems like they raise their prices every couple of months.

    1. Come on hounds, one reply in 4 days? A little help please.

          I think because the title of thread does not clearly state what you are looking for, people aren't clicking on it. I know I didn't want to. I hate being"forced" to decide if I want to read a thread. It's possible someone with extensive empanada knowledge just isn't clicking this thread because they don't know what it is about. My two cents.

          Dommy and I went. They were interesting and Tasty.

          1. Thanks hounds, that's what I'm talking about! Keep em coming!

            1. Baja Ranch Market in Monrovia have both the meat and cheese/fruit ones. They are good. I am currently in love with their Cuban black beans & rice and their Chile Colorado!
