The island has a new empanadas place. If you don’t know what an empanada is, I recommend going to Empacurious immediately and indulging. I haven’t been yet, but it is at the top of my list.

The artisanal food company, located within the cafe at The Center of Anna Maria Island, 407 Magnolia Ave., makes “stuffed delights in a sheet of heaven.” From 6-11 p.m. every night of the week except Sunday, Empacurious makes Argentina-style empanadas and Brazilian chipas (cheese breads) available for delivery or pick-up. Hand-crafted bowls, sliders, wraps, tacos, side dishes and sauces also are available.

For more about Empacurious’ cultural influences, visit their cuisine page.

Beyond the delivery and pick-up options, Empacurious offers fresh-frozen, vacuum-sealed savory or sweet options to take and make at home. Catering services are also available. Contact Empacurious at 941-447-0414.

On the Empacurious website, you can also sign up for the company’s “buzz,” which will update you on expansion of delivery areas and special deals.
