In Bogota they eat hamburgers with a knife and fork
I spent 5 days in the Colombian capital, walking, walking and of course eating.
I can not say that I tasted thousands of local dishes, I tried some of the most emblematic, some Asian food (fixed on any trip to anywhere), German food at friends' house and incredible burgers. I also visited a popular market, where I felt like a child in a new toy store of the amount of fresh products, some unknown to me. I'll tell you this experience here: paloquemao market
The first thing I did when I arrived in Bogotá was to eat. Avianca's food was frightful, so the hunger was double, I had to get rid of the bad taste of a horrible sandwich they served.
A place called "The next door" in the historic center of the city. city, 20 meters from the majestic Plaza Bolivar, was the right place to try the famous ajiaco, followed by a good piece of beef with chimichurri. The second dish much better than the first one.
I also tried a soup called Changua, very similar to the Venezuelan Andean pinch./p>
The breakfasts were always at the hotel and although they were good, they bored: scrambled eggs, fried and in parrots, semi-sweet arepa stuffed with cheese, juice and tea. Hotel breakfast.
The following days were gastronomically varied, in part because the offer of Creole food in Bogota is not very varied, and partly because I ate where my hunger took hold.
I was also in a famous chain of hamburgers that are everywhere called" Del Corral ", with an incredible menu, with almost endless options, from the traditional burger to, for example, the one I ate: Mexican, with cream of beans, guacamole and cheese. Yes, you eat it with a knife and fork.
In my visit to Bogota's Zona Rosa, I dined at the "Wok" restaurant dedicated to Asian food, without focusing on a specific country. You could order sushi, Chinese noodles, Vietnamese soups, Cambodian sausages, Thai stir-fries. The letter was simply great.Exquisite. I did not take a picture, but as I plan to prepare it, I can probably do it on this blog.
I missed the tray paisa and the tamales to say I ate the "tourist" dishes. No matter, there will be more trips.
