Panas, an empanadas shop near Dupont Circle, is an excellent spot to get your empanada fix. It is bright, cheery, friendly, cheap and offers a wide variety of delicious empanadas, including many options for vegetarians. The empanadas on offer range from the carnivore lover’s chipotle steak to the “popeye” (sautéed spinach and onions, golden raisins, cream and goat cheese). The empanadas are smaller and lighter than the ones at Julia’s Empanadas and at $2.50 each, are best ordered a few at a time. Stop in for a fast, cheap, and tasty meal or snack!
Panas is located at 2029 P St NW.
