  our history
In 1985, Norma Gil and her sons, John, Shane, Jim and Jesse,
opened their doors to the little Culver City Empanada's Place.
They would have never imagined how popular their unique
empanadas would become. One of the great joys of
Argentine cooking.

We want to express our special thanks
to all the food critics like Elmer Dills,
Merrill Shindler, Mirta Rodriguez,
Linda Burum, and so many others
who collaborated with us on this
journey. And to all our customers,
who we have enjoyed so much
serving them.
