Ok yes. We may or may not be obsessed with empanadas (see our recent review of Chilean empanadas), and we are well aware that there is a sort of ‘rivalry’ between Argentinian empanadas and Chilean ones. Our intention is not to stoke the fire and create an empanada war; the two can co-exist peacefully in our stomachs, trust us.
The great thing about the bundle delivery system is they come in packages of 12–the perfect number to enjoy with friends, making it a communal concept (which is exactly what we did). We invited some friends over to help us do a proper empanada tasting.
Our verdict? Spoiler alert:
They. Are. Delicious.
Their menu is quite diverse with a variety of fillings; the empanadas are baked with pastry dough, and filled with combinations of meat and/or vegetables. For example, you can order Empanadas de Carne (beef), ham & cheese, cheese & onion, creamy corn, tuna, lamb, caprese, or aubergine…the options are endless.
All of the empanadas have been carefully assembled with the highest quality of products that are sure to please any taste.
Here are our favorites:
Cheese & Onion
Ham & Cheese
So our verdict? Whatever their shape or size (or origin), empanadas are a worthwhile addition to a cook’s repertoire. The best part of this is it doesn’t require any cooking! Just order online, get them on your doorstep, pop them in the oven, voila. We whole-heartedly recommend Unicas.ch not only because they are mouthwateringly delicious, but because we feel that quality empanadas are a great new initiative for the city of Lausanne. Bring it on!
Oh, and one more thing. Maria Eugenia was very kind to include a little surprise with our order: amazing cookies with quince that went perfectly with green or black tea. Yum!
