This restaurant, across from the San Francisco Church, may not look like much from the outside, but the empanadas and choclo humitas are so good! And the owner, Porfidio, is a great guy!

Although opposite the San Francisco church this tiny restaurant attracts mainly locals. They serve only a handful of items, primarily empanadas, humitas and tamales along with huge and icy bottles of Salta beer. Everything is cooked from scratch is really tasty and costs hardly anything.

Went for a small lunch, ordered 5 Empenadas with a friendly lady helping us bridging our gaps in Spanish rather than speak as they do when speaking to a friend, ended up ordering 2 more times and 13 Empenadas (Carne & Jamon y Queso). Wow!

Highly recommend both the meat and the cheese & egg empanadas, served with spicy salsa and paired with a beer.
