Original Mama's Empanadas

Venue Info

Unlike every bogus Manhattan pizza shop boasting the title “Original,” this is the legit, O.G. empanada house, straight out of the Colombian epicenter of Jackson Heights. Since its inception, Mama’s has not strayed from its honest, home-style arepa recipe, always served alongside a surplus of their addictive-ass ambrosial green sauce.
