April 8 is National Empanada Day!

National Empanada Day is right around the corner! What is an empanada? The name comes from the verb empanar, meaning to wrap or coat in bread. An empanada is made by folding a dough or bread patty around some type of stuffing. The stuffing can consist of meats, vegetables, fruits, or even sweets.  Flaky, warm and delicious; there’s nothing better than a savory empanada to celebrate this magnificent day! barleymash in the Gaslamp Quarter has some wonderful empanadas that deserve to be eaten on their special day. The stuffing of the Duck Empanadas is made with duck confit, sweet corn, arugula, goat cheese, lime crema, roasted poblano beer-cheese sauce for dipping and crispy duck skin dust to top it all off!
