Worse Service. We were Number 15 and then they served IT to The next customer who onlty had 4 empanada orders. They explained that because The customer had fewer orders that's why they served IT to The next customer. Why bother with a Number system if you are just going to serve The customers with fewer orders. We asked for our money back. They only remarked "pasensya." Sarcastically. DO NOT ORDER HERE EVER. Other branches are better.

Haven't had lunch yet so after a gym sesh in E. Rod, I was dying of hunger already. I immediately thought of the empanada restaurant where my friend usually eats after gym.

I was really hungry so I did not think of ordering empanada but I was craving for lutong bahay. Ordered bangsilog meal and crispy dinuguan all for myself!

Bangus was simply fried without specialty. It was really dry but crispy. I like crispy bangus that I can eat crunchily! Crispy dinuguan was not at all crispy but instead it was chunky! It was also kinda bitter but the sauce (blood) was thick and tasty in all fairness.

Surprisingly it is open 24 hours and as per Looloo, it has so many branches in the area so an empanada fix during midnight will do in the future!

Tried this a while ago! The staff behind the counter didn't seem too happy to see a customer. 128528 anyway, we only went here for a quick bite as we waited for a friend to arrive. We got their Extra Special Empanada (1 egg, 2 longganisa). I love that it was cooked upon order (but the oil, que horror. 128561) as I doubt it would taste as good if served otherwise. My friend and I devoured the whole thing in 5 minutes tops despite being hot. 128518 it was so good! The vinegar the came with it also complimented the empanada well! Super yum and great to have once in a while. 128077

Authentic Ilocos delicacies within Metro Manila like empanada, longganisa, bagnet, igado, insarabasab and a lot more. You get to select how you want your empanadang ilocos (i.e. Plain, with egg, cheese, egg and cheese). Plain empanada is 50.00 and it goes up for every add on.
We haven't tried their bagnet yet but their pancit has bits of it on top and we can say based on that that it does not disappoint.

Word of advice, be sure to order extra rice for your longganisa. 128540

After our long catch-up talk with Cams, Sir Richie R suggested we try the Ilocos empanada a few blocks from Craft 128513

Since it's almost dinner time, I got the Special Ilocos Miki and the Special Empanada. The Ilocos Miki was ok, very savory especially since it was topped with chicharon. As for the empanada, I like that the wrapper is thin an perfectly fried, the stuffing was also generous, though, I would love to have more of the longanisa 128055 this one is perfect with the sukang iloko 128077

Mere mention of the name Fariñas will make you think that the place is authentic Ilokano. So expect the great taste of Ilokano cuisine in their empanadas and miki, their specialties. I tried the extra special empanada which aside from the usual ingredients is served with generous portions of chicharon and bagnet very sinful indeed. A must try also is their miki. Noodle soup with onion green, strips of chicken, garlic chips, egg plus chicharon and bagnet; a definite treat for the palate! For those who want a hot combination try the sili sauce mixed with the miki. With the hot food served one needs a cooler temperature though so I wish they would switch on their a/c. Likewise , they should serve light soft drinks for those who prefer diet sodas like me. Over all the place is good and is a must try.

Not your typical empanada store wherein you can point and its ready cooked.

This store is order basis for its empanada, it is cooked in front of you.

What i dont like is that its not well ventilated, i've been here for less than 10minutes and amoy ulam/mantika na kagad ako.

If you have somewhere else to go to, i suggest after you order labas ka muna. Haha :)

The empanada is 50php but it's 1 and half the size of an iphone.

You dont have much choice here, just regular, special, extra special.

Taste not so good, but it's unique. Parang deep fried burrito yung lasa since may beans and veggie yata,. I dont really know what's inside it.

Sorry kinagatan ko na bago ko napicturan haha
