We had a local recommendation for this place because we wanted to try the autentic bolivian salteña and it was super cool. The salteñas are fresh made and very tasty. I recommend.

Despite its small size, you wont find a better option in salteñas in La Paz, since both the jigote and the dough are delicious!

We were recommended here by staff at our hostel, and were not disappointed. Delicious salteñas, good value for money. We went back for more another day! Looked clean with decent hand washing facilities too. Recommend.

People, let's get real. A saltena is just an empanada, a pasty, a turnover. An excellent snack in the middle of a busy day. This little joint is just fine for a pick-me-up. Their food is good, quick, and the kids working there are nice.

Had the vegerarian ones and they were delicious. Not greasy, crust was perfect, and came out hot (temperature wise) which is always a plus for me. And very inexpensive. Would recommend.

My wife and I stopped in and had al the saltenas except the hoja. We loved the beef, Hawaiian, and vegetarian. The staff were helpful and nice and the crowd was all families and friends. Wonderful place.

By far the most delicious Salteñas in La Paz! I love the vegetarian Salteñas, it's also great to take out and eat as a snack during the day.

It's not gourmet food, but it's an opportunity to try a Bolivian speciality in a clean and safe (health-wise) environment. When we mentioned in our hotel that we were planning to come here they were quick to acknowledge that it is the best place for...More
