What You'll Get
An empanada is both delicious and portable, much like a pocket-sized steak or a chicken whittled from cheddar. Set your mouth in motion with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh-baked empanadas, drinks, and more at Nonna's Empanadas in Beverley Hills. This deal also includes two free drinks.
Nonna's Empanadas hand-stuffs pillowy half moons with succulent meats, fresh vegetables, and gooey cheeses daily. Because the grin-shaped, grin-inspiring empanadas are baked until golden, they are devoid of the soggy crusts, greasy fillings, and unsightly tan lines associated with deep-frying.
Nonna's brands every comestible cushion with a toasty stamp of its logo, as well as initials indicating each empanada's innards, which include beef, chicken, ham, corn, tomato, basil, onion, and more ($2.95 each). Meatitarians will enjoy the CKJ, plump with chicken, onions, jalapeños, and olives, and veggievores will prey on the T, a mouth-tickling trio of tomato, basil, and mozzarella. Select a box of a dozen empanadas ($29) to please pastry-loving crowds or to coax the Zodiac into spelling out a marriage proposal.
The quaint, beige-trimmed eatery's menu also features ornamented pizzas ($6.95–$12.95), breakfast empanadas ($2.95 each), and artfully layered, sans-crust sandwiches known as tostinos ($2–$2.50 each). On a warm afternoon, relax on the patio, and enjoy a Nonna's special empacho. Similar to a pig in a blanket, an empacho wraps a spicy argentinean chorizo sausage in empanada dough with chimichurri and mozzarella, but unlike a pig in a blanket, it cannot soar through the air wearing a quilt as a cape.

About Nonna's Empanadas
Nonna's Empanadas adds a signature flair to its namesake dough morsels, filling them with globally-inspired ingredients such as tomatoes and basil or chicken and jalapeños before emblazoning each toasty exterior with the stately block-letter initials of its unique filling. Nonna's draws upon international culinary traditions from all over the world, including countries such as Spain, India, Pakistan, Argentina, Korea, Mexico, Italy, and the Philippines. Influences from Central Asia, for example, shine in an empanada stuffed coriander, beef, and lemon, and the Cuban empanada mimics the traditional sandwich with pickles, pork, and mustard. Patrons lounge indoors and out, noshing from the menu of indulgent bistro cuisine.
