Tarascon Empanadas

Tarascon [ta.ras.kõn] Big bite. Argentinian slang for taking a big bite of food that is too good to eat slowly


Due to COVID-19 we are closed until further notice.

OK folks, this is it!

We’re closed for good….but not forever.
On March 18th, 2020, we decided to temporally close Tarascon empanadas, due to Covid-19.
While working in a shared location with another restaurant, we quickly realized that keeping social distancing in a kitchen where two restaurants operated at the same time would be impossible.

After more than a month of debating what to do, when to re-open, and seeing that some seating restrictions would be applied even if restaurants were allowed to open in the near future, we came to the conclusion that we needed to close and let Mr. Wok Restaurant fully use the space they need, in order to keep everybody safe.

We first want to thank the Mr. Wok family for the great opportunity they offered us and we wish them well.

And we want to thank from the bottom of our hearts all of our loyal customers that supported us during the 10 months we were open for business.

We grew, learned, felt the love and made new friends.

Thank you all for that.

And please, keep in touch with us through our social media, because we are planning on coming back! Meanwhile, we will keep expanding our menu with the addition of other traditional dishes, and will post photos to share with you along the way.

Thanks again everybody, and wait for us…we will be back!

Argentinian Empanadas

Argentinian Empanadas

Empanadas (literally meaning wrapped in bread) are savory pastry pockets, filled with a variety of delicious stuffings. As common as asado, pizza, pasta, or alfajores, empanadas are a mainstay in the Argentine diet.

Our Menu

We offer freshly made empanadas baked from scratch. All of them are little meals. You can choose just one kind or try them all! They are perfect as a quick but full lunch that you can bring to work. They are also a great choice for birthday parties, you can eat them on the go or enjoy them at our restaurant. You can also enjoy them on Sundays watching your favorite game along with your friends.
If you want to secure your order ahead of time, you can place an order online and we will have it ready to pick up within 30 minutes or at the time you set in your order.

About Us

Spokane has waited long enough to taste Argentinian empanadas. A family of four Argentinian-Americans are bringing this new flavor to town!

  • If you didn't already know, we're a beekeeping family that also operates BeeManiacs in Deer Park. We had our Package Day today at our farm where new and experienced beekeepers got to pick up their packages of bees.
  • Today is National Empanada day! We marked our calendar months ago to celebrate this day with our customers, but weren't expecting that we would be closed! Anyway, let's have a cyber party! Grab some of those empanadas you have in the freezer and celebrate with us! Stay safe everyone!

  • Medialunas. These “half-moon” pastries originated in Mar del Plata, Argentina, where we’re from! They may look like a typical croissant, but these are actually a completely different, sweeter pastry! Before and after baking, a sweet syrup of honey, sugar, and orange zest is brushed on top. You’re left with a crunchy caramelized outside and a soft moist inside. We love dipping them in our morning coffee! #notcroissants #medialunas #pastries #quarantinecookinglo
