So thankful for a place with great vegetarian salteñas! Pretty basic layout but 6.50bs for a Salteña is not bad.

Salteña is one of the typical snacks you can eat at mornings! You can taste them in different flavors like chicken, meat, cheese and other styles! You can't visit La Paz without tasting them! The decoration of the place is regular but the food delicious!

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.
