We went yesterday, because in Chile we also have empanadas (a thin dough filled with something) here they have a hug selection of fillings and you can choose between fried dough, baked and corn. Be careful with the spices because they are.

Loved the guacamole and plantains. The empanadas were delish! The establishment is quite small and during the week it gets pretty packed for lunch. I would recommend going before or after the lunch time rush. The food is very good and has a great variety.
