Tips

  • They were out of the brisket saltea but the pork was kinda delish
  • Omg the fries!! The fries!!!!! If you are not vegan, Order the brisket Cala!! Heaven!!!
  • Look out for a solid garlic chicken and bacon sandwich, with the tender poultry marinated in beer and garlic, as well as a triple pork sandwich (roasted pig with bacon and pork belly cracklin).
  • Salteaaaaaas.
  • The Chimba Saltena - like an empanada but with a thick, slightly sweet corn dough - is to die for. Stuffed with chicken & a slice of egg in a sauce of aji amarillo, the world's most delicious pepper.
  • I got the chicha verde and felt dumb for not trying the beloved saltea (yet)... until my sandwich came and it was juicy delicious.
  • One of the few places in Manhattan, or all of New York quite frankly, to offer the meaty cuisine of Bolivia. Pro tip: Order the saltenas, which are essentially South American soup dumplings.
  • The saltea, a Bolivian version of a empanada, is amazing. The crust is tender and crunchy with a moist meaty center. There is only shared communal seating in the concourse. The fruit drinks are good.
  • The chimba saltena is to die for.
  • Great saltenas! Get the beef
  • Chicken saltena is a religious experience. So good. Get napkins!!!!
  • Beef Saltea
  • The flavors are all straight from Bolivia, but the prices are not. Still a good choice for lunch though
  • Salty..... All of it. No idea what the fuss is about.
  • What a gem! The chicken saltena was incredible, and that was all they had! Get a lot of napkins!
  • I really like the thick crust and the juicy fillings. Empanadas also came out fresh and hot. Worth a quick stop if you're heading down to the Columbus Circle subway!
  • We had the Beni salteas which tasted much like I remember from Bolivia. Sandwich de chola was also delicious. They had run out of a few things which was a shame, must be because it's popular!
  • Beni salteas are pretty good. A lot bigger than the real salteas, but still.
  • Get the salteas! Theyre like a hybrid between an empanada & a soup dumpling. There are beef, chicken & veggie options. Filling has a lot of meat, soupy goodness & a big chunk of boiled egg.
  • The menu appears to have changed since all of the recent tips: no Fries, no triple pork sando, and no pork saltena
