Makus Empanadas Event Food Adventure – 11/7
November 7, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$24.99
Join us for a Makus Empanadas Adventure in Durham on November 7th at 7pm. Early bird tickets are just $24.99 for this menu tasting and an alcoholic beverage.
Makus Empanadas is a family restaurant started by a pair of Argentinian brothers and their childhood friend. Located just north of Southpoint Mall in Durham, Makus Empanadas crafts portable goodies from their homeland that require a little handholding. From traditional fillings to homemade desserts, Makus Empanadas shares a taste of Argentina with its Durham restaurant goers. They are also filling the bellies of those attending Carolina Hurricanes or Durham Bulls games, Duke Farmers Market and many privately catered events around the Triangle, too.
After the tasting, we’ll get a tour of their kitchen and see how their team crafts up endless amounts of empanadas a day.
First course: Crisp, chewy and savory chipa bread made from cassava and cheese.
Second course: A personal empanada trio tray consisting of a chicken, ham and cheese and spinach empanada with house chimichurri and red hot sauce.
Third course: Rice and beans and spinach salad to compliment the empanadas.
Fourth course: Dessert sampler including cochitos, sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies and dulce de leche.
Fifth course: A take-home foodie bag of both a sweet corn and beef empanada.
