El Patio De La Empanada - Restaurant Salta - Argentina

One of the best places to try traditional Salteña cooking is El Patio de la Empanada. When hungry patrons come in, the women of the six stands around the central patio wave their aprons, beckoning diners to come to their place. All these women offer the same fare for the same price, though each uses her own secret recipes. Locro is good to warm up on a chill night. A light dinner can be had sampling the empanadas (chicken, beef, cheese or charqui—pemmican), tamales and humitas. Stalls are open daily 8 a.m.-1a.m.
