Authentic Puerto Rican Cuisine
Keep an eye out for El Puerto de las Empanadas the next time you’re in Berwick. This trailer serves delicious Puerto Rican food that’s definitely worth the stop.
El Puerto de las Empanadas opened in March. They’ve become so popular that they’re opening a new, larger food truck later this summer.
Of course, the main draw is the handmade empanadas, which are fried pockets of dough stuffed with fillings. El Puerto de las Empanadas offers traditional flavors like beef and chicken, as well as creative fusion flavors like buffalo chicken and pizza.
For the full experience, order the sampler, which comes with an empanada, tostones (fried plantains), queso frito (fried cheese) and sweet corn sticks. They also have incredible daily specials. When we stopped by, they were serving up a shrimp mofongo soup.
Now that restaurants are back open, we have a lot of lunch dates to make up. In this series, we’re visiting cafés, sandwich shops and more across NEPA and giving you an inside look at what they have to offer. Take your lunch break with us and show your support for our local restaurants.
