Having Argentinean blood means being an empanada addict. So when I came to Barcelona I was so exited that there were so many places that sell them. But of course sometimes the empanadas are a disappointment, and have nothing to do with the pastries you eat in Argentina.
But then I discovered La Fabrica. I passed by and saw all these perfectly hand folded empanadas shining in the vitrine. I entered and discovered the huge list of all kinds of different types. To test if I finally had found the authentic ones I ordered two of my all time favorites; one with meat and one with ham and cheese. And yes, they took me back to Buenos Aires with the first bite. I even took my father from Argentina there when he visited me, to really make sure I wasn’t just hallucinating, but yes, he agreed.
Empanadas are perfect as a little snack or, if you take some more, they can even work as a lunch or dinner. If you want to eat them in La Fabrica they heat them up for you in a little oven and you can have them standing at the wall bar, they don’t have tables. But you can also take them home, buy some bottles of wine, and organize an empanada party for your friends!
They have 2 shops. The other Fabrica is located at Carrer del Call 19.
