Johnny Pacific emerged from a lifelong affinity for street food ( that cuisine being served from homemade carts, grills and other creative makeshift good-eats staging grounds). Drawing people in with mind altering aromas, street eats are revered for delivering big flavors in humble packages. This culinary passion grew side by side with chasing another Johnny Pacific influence, the best waves in the Pacific Ocean. From Bali to Mexico, California to Hawaii, it seemed a wonderful coincidence that the best street eats were somehow connected to the best waves the Great Pacific could serve up. Like those far off storms who send their celebrated swells to our shores, we are enjoying the fruits of a culinary tradition whose origins are likewise far from our home in Los Angeles. The inspiration and influence on Johnny Pacific Empanadas span from: South America, The Philippines, Central America, Mexico , the Carribean, the West Indies, and everywhere in between! From us here at Johnny Pacific, we hope you enjoy your GOOD EATS!
