Salteñas (which some have compared to very big, Argentine-type, baked empanadas) might be the best fast-food in Bolivia. I have Bolivian friends living in Sucre, and I've been coming to this town for month-long visits every-other year for the past twelve years. My major complaint with Sucre is that they do not realize that there might be a demand for... More

Not amazing food. A little too much sauce inside the Saltenas. Really busy but worth at least one try to compare the empanadas in Sucre.

Saltenas are a Bolivian version of an empanada. These have an amazing pastry on the outside and a delicious, sweet filling on the inside. You can choose between chicken, beef, or the empanadas of Santa Cruz, which have sugar sprinkled on the top. Personally, I couldn't get enough of the Saltenas de Caldo (carne, beef), and I must have eaten... More

I went here with my Spanish teacher for an authentic Sucre salteña, and I can definitely say I was not disappointed. The place was packed around lunchtime, which is always a good sign. The pastry was perfectly golden on the outside, and the sauce and filling was warm and well-seasoned. The prices were right, very affordable, and service was incredibly... More

This place is very nice, in a patio. Who can order chicken or beef empanadas, also fresh juice. They are very tasty and cheap. Service is very fast. Great place for breakfast of even lunch!

This place was recommended to us by our Spanish teacher in Sucre, fantastic Saltenas, but the place only opens until around 11.30 - 12noon. I assume they stay open until they run out, we had class in the week, so went every Saturday and Sunday for brunch. You queue at the til and get your ticket, then queue at the... More

Yep the best. There are many that make these tasty pot pie like treats but none compare to the ones made here. Although the locals enjoy them with Cola, even at 10am in the morning, I usually go for the cafe con leche. Ask for extra caliente. One caveat however, the service is rather slow and not to many smiles... More

The most recommended place in Sucre to get Salteñas, but they sell out quickly. It took us a few attempts to get there before they close or ran out. The two times we managed to get any were both before 10am. The salteñas are cheap (6 Bs each) and they service is quick. You order at the till by the... More
