Nuchas Empanadas: Hand-Held Goods Made in NYC

Nuchas Times Square Kiosk

If you’re craving delicious baked empanadas, check out Nuchas Empanadas at their kiosk in the heart of Times Square or their food truck roaming through the streets of NYC. On the menu is a selection of meat, veggie, and sweet empanadas with influences from around the globe, as well as other pastries and sweets. You might also find limited-edition empanadas, like the Makers Mark Bourbon Hampshire Pork. These aren’t your typical empanadas.

All eight varieties of Nuchas empanadas.
How do you tell which is which? Just check for the letter in the corner.

After tasting all eight flavors, we’ve narrowed our favorites to a few:

  • Argentine – Pat Lafrieda’s ground beef, onions, pepper, scallions, potatoes and olives
  • Jambalaya – Shrimp, arborio rice, tomatoes, onion, peppers, tumeric dough 
  • Portobello – Portobello mushrooms, spinach, onion, mozzarella and fresh herbs, spinach dough
  • Apple, Cranberry, and Nutella – Granny Smith apples, cranberries, pear, Nutella and chocolate, white almond dough

The Argentine is the top seller at Nuchas and we can taste why. The saucy inside is rich and packed with flavor.

The Apple, Cranberry, and Nutella empanada is as awesome as it sounds. Be sure to grab one, especially if you see them come out of the oven.
