LONG LIVE THE KING
Empanada Emperor Shares
justo enfrente de la playa!"
Translated for you Gringos,
that's "Empanadas delicious
just opposite the beach."
For some time now, the Empanada King has held court, serving-up breakfast, lunch and dinner to loyal and hungry customers in the laid back island community of Satellite Beach, Florida. Oddly, despite my 40-year beachside residency, I only discovered the King and his tasty creations recently — during the Grand Opening celebration of his new restaurant, located just across the Indian River in Melbourne's Renningers Flea & Farmer's Market.
|Crisp and golden delicious perfection!|
(They don't call him "the King" for nothin')
An ever-cordial host, the King himself makes each dining experience unique and memorable — greeting customers personally and offering samples of his homemade signature salsas — from slightly-mild to super-spicy. Then, REAL decisions ensue. Mmm, what's it gonna be — beef/pork empanada, chicken, shrimp or cheese? (Full disclosure, I sampled a little bit of everything.)
|I was honored and humbled to meet "the King."|
Prepared fresh, on the premises, in his personal kitchen, the King's quality Latin-American cuisine is truly scrumptious (and recommended highly). Heading beachside or out to the Farmer's Market? Pop by, try a tasty treat and become a believer. Oh yeah, the King also has Take Out, AND he caters.
