Excellent Empanadas, South American - 2001
Mi Bolivia - CLOSED
The Bolivian twist on the empanada is known as the salteña, and it boasts a braided spine, a crisp and achiote-tinted crust, and a filling that's much juicier than a regular empanada's. As such, it should be eaten with a fork to avoid dry-cleaning bills. There are only two Bolivian restaurants and one deli in town, as far as I can tell, and my favorite place to score salteñas is Sunnyside's bakery-cum-restaurant, MI BOLIVIA.
