Empanada Harry’s in Miami, Florida

I had my eyes on Empanada Harry’s Instagram account for a few weeks in April 2017. Then, I made my first appearance at their restaurant the following month, almost like a magician.

My first thought after looking around was that time was spent on the little details all around Empanada Harry’s. They were definitely injecting themselves into the space.

It was the exact opposite of one of those soulless gastropubs that exist only to suck money out of your wallet. I felt right at home.

Harry and Michelle Coleman own Empanada Harry’s, and Smoke and Dough next door. Harry’s father, Philip Coleman, has owned Moises Bakery in Miami Beach since 1991.

Moises Bakery is closer to a traditional Venezuelan bakery. Its influence is seen all over Empanada Harry’s. Harry grew up in the business, and Philip passed on his passion to his son.

He met his wife, Michelle, when they both attended FIU. More than 15 years later, he runs the back of the house while Michelle takes orders and greets customers upon entering Empanada Harry’s.

No one can beat their daily selection of empanadas. Also, make sure to ask about the monthly special. My wife Marcela lives for their Vegan Empanada.

You know it must be good if even I’m willing to give it a mention!

The Chipotle Chicken is my favorite if you’re taking notes at home. There hasn’t been a lousy empanada in the bunch.

While they are a good thirty minutes away from me, I spend my drive thinking about what I’m going to buy, and then on the drive back, I’ve got a road empanada.
