The Best Bolivian Food In NYC Is Served In A Subway
Underneath the 8th Avenue side of the Columbus Circle subway station lives an underground food hall known as Turnstyle. Bolivian Llama Party’s location in Turnstyle may be overlooked by the average commuter. But for any determined New Yorker, Bolivian Llama Party’s salteñas and chola sandwiches are well worth the hunt.
Sometimes called Bolivian soup dumplings, salteñas are best enjoyed by biting off the tip and slurping up all the delicious filling through the gap. We made the trek to Bolivian Llama Party via the subway to try out three kinds of salteñas and the best-selling chola Bolivian Llama Party offers. We talked to the three-brother team behind the restaurant about what it’s like to run a restaurant inside of a subway station.
