What's a salteña?
Salteñas are sweet pastries filled with a delicious savory stew made with potatoes, English peas, and special Andean seasoning. Saya's salteñas are the result of many hours of testing to create a balance of flavor and quality that are fundamental to the finished product. We use no artificial flavors and no MSG. Each salteña is individually handmade from start to finish.
Hi! I'm Maria Helena Iturralde, the owner of Saya. I first arrived to DC in 1999 to study engineering at George Washington but my passion for food took over and I launched Saya.
I've always wanted to be able to showcase my culture through cooking, and I'm so happy that Saya has allowed me to do that.
"These were my first saltenas, but my friend has tried many before and was really impressed. The crust was wonderful, with a light sweetbread taste, and the filling was a hearty stew. We tried the spicy chicken and spicy beef. Neither of them are particularly hot, so don't worry about that - they're just well seasoned."
