Maestro Empanadas


Coralville, Iowa

When Christian Bejarano and Marta Hamity moved to Iowa from Argentina, they had trouble finding their favorite food: the empanada, a turnover-style pastry stuffed with a variety of savory fillings. They got cooking and brought empanadas to the Iowa City Farmer’s Market in 2011, quickly earning a cult following. In 2015 they opened a storefront in Coralville – less than a block from the Coralville Co-op – and won third place in Top Chef Iowa City 2017!

Stop by your Co-op's freezer case for their delicious handmade empanadas in savory flavors like Cheese, Quinoa, Zucchini, or Humita (sweet corn, onion, red bell pepper, and Gouda cheese), each closed with a unique fold to designate their filling.
