                      About US:


La Empanada opened in early 2016 at Old Bus Depot Markets in Kingston, ACT. Since then, our award winning chefs have been preparing both quality interpretations of modern dishes and daring new cuisine ventures by introducing the flavours of South America to Canberra - ACT, through our catering business - Quinoa Catering.

We have cooperated and provided catering for multiple events and local businesses, but currently our main focus is selling our Empanadas at our Bakehouse and at main events throughout the ACT and at local markets in Canberra:
