Fodor's Expert Review Paceña la Salteña

$ La Paz Latin American

The one thing you cannot leave without trying—and quite possibly falling in love with—is a hot, juicy salteña (the Bolivian version of an empanada). You will get at least a little on your shirt; everyone does the first time. Both Sucre and Potosí claim to have the best, but many will point to this little shop, which has four locations around the city. The decor really doesn't matter, and the service is efficient and friendly. The pastry shell is just the right amount of sweet, and the filling is satisfyingly juicy. Don't hesitate to try all the options: meat, poultrey, and vegetarian. Repeat daily.
