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.

Get there early for beef, we arrived at half 1 and they only had chicken, and 1 vegetarian left. Delicious. Also, extremely clean, they obviously take food hygiene seriously. They're 6b each, or you can get 2 and a juice for 15b.

According to many people in La Paz, this is the best salteneria. From my modest point of view indeed, the saltenas here are excellent! More than recommended!

When in bolivia you have to try the empenadas and this is a good place to try it. It's cheap, quick and good, all of them, but I liked the vegetarian one the most (best sauce)
