The registrar of food holidays has declared that today, April 8th is National Empanada Day and that means bargain empanadas around Philadelphia.

Cuba Libre is celebrating by offering empanadas for just one dollar between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Also, all month, the Old City Cuban restaurant is donating 50 cents of all empanada sales to Philabundance.  In addition to the charitable effort, each empanada purchased will earn a raffle ticket. At the end of the month, all tickets will be entered into a drawing with the winner claiming free empanadas for a year.

Jose Garces’s Rosa Blanca is also offering dollar empanadas. All day, the cheese empanadas are being discounted. So head out and celebrate the empanada.
