Aye! Empanadas & More is an Argentinian restaurant offering scrumptious and traditional homemade treats. Brought to you by the folks behind Wellington’s first Argentinian-style café, Buenos Aires Café, without a doubt, you’ll be treated to the most delicious bakery goods around.
Located in Kilbirnie, the 5-star reviewed restaurant particularly creates authentic Empanadas and Alfajores that are totally instagrammable. Plus, they make an excellent quick breakfast or lunch idea.
The empanadas are handcrafted with homemade pastry, filled with fresh ingredients and some of the most popular authentic flavours from Argentina. Think the likes of Beef, Chicken, Vegan Sweetcorn, Spinach, Caprese…the list is endless. Each filling is generously squeezed inside a thick pastry wall.
Meanwhile, those with a sweet tooth can enjoy the drooling traditional alfajores pastries which are made with two gooey cookies and a creamy caramel dulce de leche in-between. Menu highlights include the Vegan Alfajor as well as White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and Cornflour.
Additionally, they create whole cakes upon request and a number of other cakes such as Ricotta Cheesecake, a delicious Walnut & Chocolate Brownie using a secret recipe and Chocotorta. However, the Empanadas and Alfajores are must trys.
