NileGuide Expert tip:
Chile Lindo is a cash only establishment
Baked empanadas are considered Chile's national dish and Chile Lindo Empanadas are considered a Mission District classic. Serving three types of empanadas and a host of coffee and latte options from its tiny storefront on 16th St, Chile Lindo makes a great pit stop for some java or a super quick lunch on the go. The cheese and jalapeno is tasty and for something more filling, try the classic "Pino" stuffed with minced meat, sauteed onions, an olive, hard-boiled egg, raisins, paprika, and cumin.
