Salteña: A salteña is a pastry enjoyed for breakfast. According to legend, they were introduced to Bolivia by the wife of one of the early presidents of Bolivia, who was from the Argentine city of Salta (hence the name).

They are extremely popular: you can’t miss them for sale on the streets of any Bolivian city.
