Start with an appetizer or soup from the menu, such as the signature peanut soup or a chicken salteña—the Bolivian version of an empanada—before diving into an entree such as the roast beef steak with onions, tomatoes, eggs, and fried cassava.
Mi Bolivia's salteñas are the talk of the town. Meg Cotner of QueensNYC found the combination of savory chicken or ground-beef filling and flaky, slightly sweet pastry to be "pure heaven." She noted that the empanada-like bundles can be served with a spicy green sauce called llajwa. Food blogger Charles Bibilos described the ultra-juicy salteñas as "obscenely delicious," which is also how Victorians described cakes shaped like a woman's ankle.
The small family-run eatery makes a signature peanut soup that "sells out quickly" according to Time Out New York. The chefs also cook up classic Bolivian dishes such as silpancho, a breaded steak topped with an egg and served with rice and salad.
