Empanada was first introduced to the Philippines during the Spanish colonization when Spaniards cooked and taught the Ilocanos how to make this European cuisine. The empanada is commonly a baked or fried (or both) pastry with a crescent-like shape, filled with meat, carrots, and egg, wrapped into perfection in a crunchy bun. The term empanada came from the Galician word empanar which means “enbreaded” or to wrap something in bread.
