“The next BIG thing”
Review of Papa Luna's - CLOSED

Papa Luna's

Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 April 2015

After visiting Papa Luna's I am now convinced that empanadas with unique, tasty fillings are the next big thing in food. Just the right size for a quick lunch or snack. Hot and tasty with a variety of choices, vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Price was very reasonable. We tried a variety of empandas, but my two favorites were the Sunny Goat (goat cheese, sausage and sun dried tomato) and Empanada de Choclo (peppers, cheese and corn). But there were some I still haven't tried but look yummy. Would make a nice take away meal to cook at home too. Got to try these babies out! Yum!

My wife and I love empanadas. Tried this place when it opened on Colombia in downtown SD. The empanadas are great. And they are baked, not fried. I had jamon y queso and the beef empanadas. My wife had the corn and the vegetarian empanadas. For dessert we split a dulce con leche and apples empanadas. Awesome. Fresh and hot. These are goooooood.

Stopped by here while cruising around with the family. We weren't starving but wanted a tasty snack. This place was perfect and was great finger food for our toddlers. I wanted a chicken one and they had a thai chicken empanada. I thought that was so neat and it was very tasty. The house salad was also nice, overflowing with avocados and tomatoes. perfect treat.

Easily the best cheap eats in all of San Diego. Papa Luna's offers a selection of around 12-15 different fillings for the empanadas. There is also a empanadas of the month. All the savory choices come with a sauce, the chimichurri is great. You get a choice of fried, baked or heat at home. My fave was the Kickin' Chicken. So for less than $4 a pop you can get a nice flaky pastry stuffed with delicious filling. The staff was very nice and helpful while I tried to sort out my choices. I wish the had a store in my hometown. I would be there every day.

This is a cute little place that you must try if in the PB area. Good for a quick bite or early dinner. They take things that you would not expect anf make a delicious empanada. I personally had the mahi one as well as the goat cheese. Both delicious.
