An introduction to Colombian cuisine: 5 places to get started

(Guest Post for See Colombia Travel)

Last week I wrote my first guest post for the lovely folks over at See Colombia Travel Colombia Travel Blog. I listed my top 5 restaurants for typical Colombian cuisine in Bogotá. How did I narrow it down to these 5 (plus one bonus) restaurants? Well, it wasn’t easy but quality of food, ambience, price and personality were all factors. Check out my list and let me know what you think…

Gallina (hen) has been served at El Piqueteadero Doña Nieves for 65 years! This family-run establishment strives to keep the recipes just as they were back when the restaurant was founded.

What’s your favorite restaurant in Bogotá for Colombian food?

    It’s an interesting list and although I’ve been to several of these places, I haven’t tried Asadero El Motorista, largely because it seems so out of the way. I noticed there’s also Fogon llanero, west of el centro. I’m curious if you’ve been there and how the two restaurants compare?

    • Hi Brad,

      El Motorista is a little out of the way, I agree. The only other asadero I’ve been to is even farther away, behind one of the airport’s runways! I’ll have to check out the one you mention. There are two I have also been meaning to try: one located somewhere behind el Museo del Oro and one heading out on Autopista Norte that was at the Alimentarte food fest last year (can’t think of the name right now). Either of those would be a lot more convenient. I’ll keep readers posted if I get to try any others….

      Thanks for your comment!

      If you are looking for Colombian food totally different then try Minimal in Chapinero (57th and 4th)

      • I have tried it and it’s one of my favorite restaurants. I keep meaning to write a post on the place but haven’t yet! Thanks for the comment and recommendation 🙂
