New York is one of the most diverse cities in the world. But when it comes to Bolivian food, it’s scarce in the Big Apple, and the one place selling salteñas isn’t made at a fancy restaurant: it’s sold in an underground vendor called Llama Party, located right in the heart of the Columbus Circle subway station.

If you’re not familiar with salteñas, think of them as a the Latin equivalent of a soup dumpling-empanada hybrid, except bigger in size and probably even better in taste. Food Insider’s recommendation for tackling salteñas is to bite off a the tip and slurp up all the inside goodness. So… anyone hungry?
