Arlington, VA

A new food cart is planning to launch in Arlington this weekend.

Capital Empanadas will serve “freshly-made Andean-style empanadas” to denizens of the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor and, in a few weeks, Crystal City as well.

The cart’s owner, Richard Villegas, is a native of Colombia and a ten-year Arlington resident. Villegas says he is “thrilled” to introduce this “unique treat” to the area.

“Our Andean-style handmade empanadas have typical flavors from our beloved Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru,” the Capital Empanadas web site says. “We put our heart and soul into our empanadas and you’ll feel the love once you meet us and enjoy them.”

The cart is scheduled to make its first appearance at the Courthouse Farmer’s Market, starting at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday. Empanada fans will be able to follow the cart on Twitter and Facebook.

The Capital Empanadas menu includes:

  • Meat (carne) empanada
  • Chicken empanada
  • Cheese empanada
  • Veggie empanada
  • Plantain chips
  • Dulce de Leche
  • Water and soft drinks (including Colombiana, Inca Kola and Coke products)
