Mama’s Empanadas-SF Mobile Catering Opens in San Francisco


Delicious oven-baked gourmet empanadas and Northern Italian cuisine and salads are served by Mama’s Empanadas-SF, a mobile catering food truck and catering company serving the San Mateo and San Francisco areas.

Mama’s Empanadas-SF specializes in creating empanadas using fresh and healthy ingredients with a Mediterranean flair. Empanadas are fried or baked pastries stuffed with meats, cheese, vegetables or fruit, among other things. They originated in Spain and Portugal, but Spanish conquistadors spread the dish to Latin America and the Philippines.

Mama’s Empanadas is proud to bring their signature oven-baked gourmet empanadas made with fresh, unique, and healthy ingredients with a Mediterranean flair to San Francisco. Savory choices include roasted chicken with red bell peppers, cumin, and pimento stuffed green olives or Niman Ranch Angus ground beef, tomatoes, pepperoncini, onions, garlic, and spicy seasoning blend. They also serve vegetarian empanadas filled with fresh veggies and spices like French-cut green beans, carrots, sweet peas, bell peppers, garlic, onions, and Parmesan cheese. Mama’s also serves a soup of the day and an Italian item of the day.

Every Thursday, customers can find Mama’s Empanadas-SF serving oven baked gourmet empanadas in San Francisco via Truck Stop, a food truck meet-up where different vendors get together for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Truck Stop gathers a rotating selection of the best food trucks in San Francisco. It is located on Mission Street between First and Fremont.

Mama’s Empanadas-SF is also a regular at Off the Grid in downtown San Mateo, a food truck meet-up every Monday evening from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. providing dinner service. Off the Grid is described as a mobile food extravaganza, which holds weekly markets at various locations throughout the Bay Area.

The first Friday of each month, Mama’s Empanadas-SF takes part in Moveable Feast at the San Mateo Expo Center. Over 15 food trucks join in this event that includes music, art and other activities for families to enjoy. The previous Moveable Fest was on the Friday of Labor Day weekend, Sept. 2, at the Expo Center, 1364 Saratoga Drive.
