A Rohnert Park gas station is now home to authentic Argentinian empanadas.
Vinoma opened last week in a former Subway restaurant, featuring the original grab-and-go meal — meat, cheese and veggie-filled pockets of pastry dough.
Start with the traditional beef “carne suave” with scallions, red onions, olives, chopped eggs and spices, then move on to steak and cheese, ham and cheese, al pastor with caramelized pineapple or less traditional plum and bacon, creamy corn, spinach artichoke or Buffalo chicken.
Early birds can try breakfast empanadas with sausage and cheese, and for dessert, grab a blueberry cobbler or apple crisp “open” empanada.
Each empanada is just $3.19, or you can get a dozen for $32.99. It’s a perfect fill-up while you fill up. 5085 Redwood Drive, Rohnert Park, vinoma.net.

The difference between a so-so meat pie and a great meat pie is the dough – about which Ms. Irwin says nothing. So not a very helpful review, but we’ll stop in sometime and give them a try.
We tried these yesterday. While they are delicious, they are extremely small, especially for the price. It would take at least 4, 5 for bigger eaters, to fill up on them. We used to get empanadas that were double the size for only 20 cents more. I would love to order and freeze these for quick meals, but won’t go back unless they make the size more generous for the price.
I’ve noticed that a lot of gas station cashiers in Sonoma County like to sell their ethnic food. I tried Krispy Krunchy Chicken in Geyserville after reading a rave article on SFGate. It wasn’t that great. They don’t know how to properly quarter a chicken and it was super fatty. Cheap cuts to make a profit.
Da me lo.
