|Hi, I’m a delicious crab (jaiba) empanada!|
We visited the one by the boardwalk on Seis Poniente ( 6 Poniente 235, Viña del Mar. Phone: 032-2979919) and also their smaller location on 5 Norte (5 Norte 377, Viña del Mar. Phone: 032-2971821) . I recommend the first location, especially if you’re with a large group. I haven’t been to the third location in Reñaca.
Our favorites were the crab with cheese (Jaiba y queso), crab with cheese, spicy sauce and other stuff (ok, it’s crab, creme, turmeric, hot pepper & cheese) (jaiba, crema cúrcuma, merquén y queso) and the spicy chicken (picante de pollo). Also pretty baller is the shrimp with mushrooms, cilantro sauce & cheese (camarones con champiñones en salsa de cilantro con queso). Stick to the fried ones. The appetizers are also pretty good, with the fried calamari and selection of salsas being a favorite.
Beer is pretty cheap, and the hot sauce is actually spicy. The service is hit or miss (as with anywhere else outside of the USA, really) – but if you’re looking for some delicious fried empanadas and seafood, look no further and stop at Entremasas in Viña del Mar.
