‘Secret’ Dayton restaurant now delivering piping hot, golden-crusted empanadas

You can now get (or will soon be able to get) piping hot, golden-crusted empanadas delivered to you.

The owners of La Embajada Underground, an Argentinean-style eatery that offers "secret dining," have launched an empanada delivery service for the Miamisburg, Centerville, West Carrollton, Kettering and Oakwood areas.

The company recently purchased a food trailer specifically for empanadas and expects to use it to expand its delivery service to the rest of Montgomery County in a few months.

"I know we are going to be the place to come for empanadas," Monica Fabregat, who owns La Embajada with her husband Jorge, told this news organization.

The couple has been in communication with fans who have eaten at their restaurant or eaten their empanadas at local farmers markets where they operated as La Embajada.

Fabregat said there is a minimum purchase of a half-dozen empanadas for delivery and a $3 delivery fee. Six  empanadas cost $12.

Restaurants in Argentina sell up to 15 types of empanadas, said Fabregat, a native of Buenos Aires.

Her restaurant sells seven including beef, chicken, spinach, vegan spinach, soy beef, corn and a German-style blood sausage empanada.

Jorge is perfecting a spicy empanada and one made with seafood, she said.

Varieties are ordered in sets of three.

Customers will be able to place orders through La Embajada Underground's Facebook page. 

Fabregat said a menu and order button will soon be added to the page. Right now, direct message the business on Facebook to inquire about delivery.
