Empanada refers to a crescent-shaped pastry turnover stuffed/filled with savory meats and vegetables fillings or sweet fruit fillings. Empanada's recipe varies from cook to cook. In Ilocos Region, in the north of the Philippines, there are already two (2) famous Empanada, the one from Vigan, Ilocos Sur and Empanada Batac from Batac, Ilocos Norte
I am proud of the the Empanada which is sold in the San Pablo City, Laguna which is buy whenever I visit my relatives in Metro Manila as my treat coming from the province (Pasalubong, we call it in the Philippines) whenever I have my vacation in the Philippines. It is made by El Mare. Their Empanada are always freshly baked.
Here are the pictures of the Empanada from my city in Laguna. I think these Empanadas are baked in the oven so it is not oily, which make it light on the stomach
