Two points for the customized neon sign: one for the shoutout to salteñas, Bolivia's take on empanadas, and one for troubling to add the tilde, even if it lacks a squiggle. Minus one point for the neighboring neon (not shown here) that dilutes the Bolivian mystique with the message "pollo con sabor Peruano." Minus another point for the dining room devoid of staff and customers, despite the illuminated "open" sign.
Net: not an auspicious hour to sample those salteñas.
