Why go: Plates are as generous and hearty as the welcome at this bright refuge for Bolivians. Comfort food doesn’t get much more comforting.
What to get: Chicken or beef salteñas (weekends only); huminitas, a sweet, steamed corn cake; lomo (steak and eggs); sopa de mani, a wonderful beef-and-peanut soup.
Best for: A savory alternative to brunch; anyone who complains of still being hungry after eating at daintier places.
Insider tip: If you want to try salteñas but have eaten too much steak, do what many Bolivians do: Take some home. Fifteen minutes in a 350-degree oven and you’ve got a satisfying dinner.
Open daily for lunch and dinner.
