Newly opened Fons Empanadas has incredible, authentic empanadas that just happen to be made without meat. You might not be able to tell the difference between a traditional ropa vieja and Fons’s jackfruit option, especially when the filling is so perfectly seasoned and wrapped in chia-studded dough. Other options include smoky mushroom in a spinach wrapper, spicy tinga, and even a dessert empanada of apples and cinnamon in blueberry dough. Fons Empanadas are carefully crafted to have balanced flavors and just the right amount of spice, plus their colorful doughs are a feast for the eyes (and handily allow you to tell the varieties apart).
Eat in the modern and bright café on North Clark Street, or take your expertly packaged empanadas to go. The treats are easy to warm and crisp in your air fryer or oven, and make a perfect grab-and-go lunch or snack. When you opt for delivery, know that Fons does a brilliant job packing your treats with plenty of ice packs in a cute, eco-friendly package. Give this new offering a try this week!
