Our Story



Founded by Andrea and his Argentinian friend in 2013 who wanted a reminder of his Argentinian roots while in his new home in Melbourne.

With a shared passion for cooking and good food, together they developed an authentic Argentinian empanada to share with their Australian friends. Lots of hard work (and many tastings!) later and El Alamo was born!

A fresh and wholesome taste sensation for when you’re on the go, at the game or in the office, our little bundles of love are made from the highest quality, locally-sourced ingredients: hand-carved beef, fresh herbs and vegetables wrapped and baked in freshly rolled pastry.

Andres Luna, Colombian chef passionate about South American street food, is continuing to provide Australian’s appetite for these little pockets of deliciousness and has big new plans to launch in 2017!
Come and visit us at Prahran Market and find out the ultimate food for celebrations and sharing together!

Come get them while they’re hot!
