They used to sell just baked goods, now they are offering some hot Bolivian meals as well, including Silpancho, breaded fish, and peanut soup, in addition to their staple empanadas and saltenas. The new food is above average, and they do the egg on the silpancho moist, as I prefer it. You can get silpancho and sopa de mani together for lunch for only $9. The portions are smaller than in most Bolivian restaurants, but for many of you I suspect that is a plus. Overall this is a fun mom and pop with above average food, but note that the dishes can take a while to come.
