They have the best empanadas with salsa. I loved the mushroom and cheese. Stand, eat & enjoy. Cheap street food in a clean location. Should not miss. I am craving one as I type this review. Friendly servers as well.

This is a very traditional and local snack bar in Santiago. They serve empanadas, sandwiches, etc. I had the most amazing cheese empanadas ever (which are very different than the Argentine ones.) The service is so fast. They took probably 30 seconds to serve us.
