Also offered are empanadas Chilenas, fried turnovers stuffed with meat, onions, eggs, olives and raisins and llapingachos, potato pancakes served with fried eggs, chorizo and avocado. For dessert, try the quimbolito,a pudding laced with cognac and raisins and steamed in a cornhusk; El Balcon (the Balcony), the Latin lounge upstairs from La Humita, offers cocktails, appetizer and entrees, plus free live music Friday -Saturday nights.

  • Disappointing

    I very much wanted to like this restaurant: the space is warm and inviting, it is clean and tastefully decorated and the service is very friendly and attentive. The food, however, is not good. It's not bad, but it is not good. We tried several dishes on the menu, and only enjoyed the humitas, which are much lighter and sweeter than tamales, which they resemble. After that, the menu careens downhill, at a fair clip. I had the sausage plate: not good. My companion had the shrimp and rice: not good. We tried a turnover: ugh (once we managed to crack the cement-like pastry, the filling was just ok). And so on. It's too bad; it seems like a family place that I could really become attached to.

    Very good restaurant! Cozy 1st floor dining. Larger space upstairs. Food was excellent. Good display. Drinks were good as well. Nice spot for couples or double dates.
