Two new restaurants will open their doors this week in Metz (Moselle) and will both specialize in empanadas.

These two points of sale will be entirely dedicated to the sale of these small puff pastry turnovers filled with various toppings, mostly savory.

Lorraine News makes you discover these two establishments, named respectively boquita and Los Amigos.

Boquita, the flavors of Argentina in the city center

At Boquita, rue du Faisan, business has already started before the official opening, scheduled “Thursday at the latest”, according to general manager Billy Basin. “We launched the take-out last Friday,” he says.

Boquita is described as “a Argentinian restaurant » offering nine recipes for empanadas à la wheat flour baked. “We are in a latin atmosphere right down to the music playing in the restaurant,” describes Billy Basin. And even right down to the products: “We don’t have nothing european à la carte, whether in terms of food or drinks”, he continues. The entrepreneur even works with South American employees.

The restaurant will be open from Tuesday to Saturday, for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Evenings, from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. from Tuesday to Thursday and from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Los Amigos, Colombian corn flour empanadas

Just 250m away, on the other side of the Moyen Pont, Los Amigos will open to the public on Tuesday May 31 at 11 a.m., rue du Pont-des-Morts. “We wanted to use corn flour for our empanadas because this one is gluten-free”, explains Jérôme Suder, one of the partners behind the concept. “Corn flour is widely used in Colombia,” he adds.

Los Amigos will offer a “ mostly take-out, with a few tables on the terrace and an order at the counter”. In total, ten recipes, including one ephemeral, are on the menu. “We try to offer recipes with products that are a little more elaborate to adapt to French tastes”, specifies Jérôme Suder. Sandwich recipes will also fill the menu “depending on the products found”.

The restaurant will be open from Tuesday to Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
