Special local food, white corn (morocho) ,"empanadas", crunchy, salty, merged with special spicy salse (ají), the perfect snack for early morning or at coffee time. Fear price, not options, only stuffed with meat and rice. Greasy but tasty.

Alicia is the best cook and her company is equally awesome. Although we know very little Spanish, we had long and fun conversations with her! Her empanadas are delicious and are made to order! I highly recommend this place!
