Capital Region Living Magazine "Besties Awards"

We were ranked second for best Vegeterian options in the Capital Region!




This is a really great place in Albany and they make great food! I came here a few months back with my fiancee and we loved it here. The service was very good and the prices were incredibly cheap. I've never had Peruvian food before, but I was hooked from the first bite. The food is fantastic and we will definitely be coming her again!                                                                                                               -Kevin B., Yelp


Everyone raved about the food... even those who aren't very open minded with food from other cultures.... and we ordered enough that we also had empanadas for breakfast the next morning with hard boiled eggs.  
I 100% recommend LEL... and i wish them all of the success in the world with their brick and mortar place!  Can't wait to order from them again.  Service and Quality.  Very happy.

I love the empanadas from La Empanada Llama! The fillings are high quality and so flavorful. The empanada dough is yummy, and they're always perfectly cooked. Make sure you get some of the awesome green sauce. And they offer delivery.

"delicious and well-executed are the only 2 words I can think of as I write this....super top secret? their green homemade "hot sauce"  put it on cardboard and I would strap on a bib"
