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.
