We received another GC from our friends at Quick Delivery. We decided to go snack time and I think we absolutely had fun with the yummy choice of getting Empanada Mas empanadas!
About the Quick Delivery Experience
I ordered around 2PM (or rather texted them my order) and after a few minutes, they called me back to confirm the order. Yes, texting them is the way to go if you don’t have a landline and you don’t want to spend your own phone credits by calling them on your cellphone. Going back to the call, I said that I was going to pay via Gift Certificate, I’m not sure if the person who handled my call was a new guy, but he had to confirm from his supervisor (I’m not sure what he needed to confirm). Anyway, he got my GC code and all was well (estimated delivery time is 60-90minutes).
Around 3PM, QD called me again saying one of my orders (Ham & Cheese Jalapeno Empanada) was not available, so I just replaced that with another order. Then, around 3:20 (it’s been more than 60 minutes since my order), QD called me up again to say the Fritas was not available, so I replaced it yet again with another order. Around 20 minutes later (order was coming from BF Homes and we’re at Moonwalk Paranaque), thank goodness the restaurant was near our place or else it would probably take another hour if it came from a different city.
All in all, it was a little bit frustrating by the time I got the 3nd call about the 2nd order that’s not available (you’re still able to follow the story so far? ^_^). In my past experience, I would know during my first call (or at least on the 2nd call) which items are not available and which ones are. This time, they were a bit less organized than the other experiences. And by far, this is the longest time we’ve had to wait for our order, compared to our first few QD experiences even though the restaurants those times were located even farther than Empanada Mas. Well, in anycase, better late than never? At least the empanadas were warm when we received them.
About Empanada Mas
I love how they kept their menu simple and focused on their specialty, empanadas. They had all the right combinations and no misses. Their prices are also very affordable and their options make sure that there’s something for everybody.
What We Ordered
Everything fit in 2 boxes. At first I thought it would have been better if they gave us a code which ones which. We had to cut into the big ones to find out which one is pork, chicken, etc. Until this day (although there were color coded dots on each empanada) we’re not sure which one was chicken and which one was pork (yes, we all tried to unravel the mystery to no avail). With the Empanaditas, it was easy to figure out, but we made it into such a game and it was really fun. It was like, the old fish bowl lucky draw thing. Close your eyes, get one, and bite! The surprise is finding out the flavor after you bite! And again, there’s really no danger in doing that because every one of them was delicious, no matter the flavor. But for those who would like to know, we’re very sure that the green dot for the small ones means cream cheese. The green dot for the empanada, means spinach. Here are the photos, enjoy!
Chicken P27.00 (The original, generations-old recipe. Lightly seasoned strips of chicken breast, potatoes, green peas and raisins.)
Pork P27.00 (The original, generations-old recipe. Lightly seasoned ground pork, potatoes and raisins.)
Upto this day, as I said, we’re not sure which one is pork and which one is chicken (maybe you can help us out with this). But we have a fairly good idea which ones are the chorizo filled empanada (I hope we’re right). The only thing we had going with chorizo is that it should be a little bit spicier than the other 2. It didn’t really matter because we weren’t allergic to anything and also, all of them were soooooooo yummy! So I’ll just present the photos for those 3 together.
Spinach with Cream Cheese P30.00 (Fresh spinach leaves flavored with a seasoned cream cheese dressing.)
Ah, yes, unmistakably green and flavorful. Remember that I wasn’t a big spinach fan until the Va Bene experience, so now I’ve just loved spinach and everything “spinachy”. This really blew me and my mom away! Instant favorite for us veggie lovers and I really didn’t expect spinach to be used as empanada filling. Combining the green goodness with cream cheese was genius!
Cheddar Cheese ( Box of 30 pieces P190.00, Box of 60 pieces P380.00, Dozen P76.00, Half Dozen P38.00, Per Piece P7.00)
Semi-Sweet Chocolate (Box of 30 pcs. P190.00, Box of 60 pcs. P380.00, Dozen P76.00, Half Dozen P38.00, Per Piece P7.00)
Cream Cheese & Chives (Box of 30 pcs. P200.00, Box of 60 pcs. P400.00, Dozen P80.00, Half Dozen P40.00, Per piece P8.00) A creamy blend of cream cheese, garlic and chives.
Peanut Butter Fudge (Box of 30 pcs. P200.00, Box of 60 pcs. P400.00, Dozen P80.00, Half Dozen P40.00, Per Piece P8.00) This classic combination of creamy peanut butter and semi-sweet chocolate will remind you of a favorite childhood candy.
Here are the photos! Enjoy! (because we certainly did!)
I would definitely order from Empanada Mas again! And again! And again! I wish next time the Jalapeno is available because I would really want to try that. Their empanada bread was sweet, yet not overwhelming the flavors inside, it wasn’t too thick and too thin, it was perfect. The filling inside is really worth every peso. Again, I would definitely order Empanada Mas especially the empenaditas and bring them to one of our family adventures. I’d put them in a container and have everyone just draw which one they want to eat without choosing, so that every bite is a surprise! Oh what fun!
