Cheap Eats 2018: Luzmary


This Bolivian restaurant is especially popular with big groups, and once you see the plates, you’ll know why. There’s the awe-inspiring parrillada—piled with grilled short ribs, blood sausage, flank steak, cow intestines, and pork sausage—which could feed four. On weekends, gather the troops for specials such as roast pig with plantains and an earthy pork-and-intestine stew. Also good: Salteñas (soup-filled turnovers); silpancho (breaded and fried steak).
