My hotel sent me here upon my arrival in Medellin as I wanted to try the local cuisine immediately. This is an open air (with a roof, of course) restaurant in Poblado. It's very comfortable and the servers are fantastic. Although this is simple and homey food, the attire and attitude of the servers gives the place a very elevated feel.

I ordered one of their special dinners and was brought many dishes of traditional Colombian cuisine. There was tripe soup, fried pork belly (Colombian style chicharones), plantains, a large perfectly ripe avocado, salsas, fresh herbs, arepas, ground beef, rice and beans, a fresh banana and other items. I think that this banquet
cost me about $14, including a local beer. The food was excellent and represented a great value.

If you want a well-served example of traditional Colombian cuisine... Mondongos should be your "go to" spot.

This place was recommended on a website I'd been using for my travels called "The Culture Trip". We were staying at a hostel round the corner but arrived before check in. I saw how close this place was and gave it a try. Best move we could have made! Full of locals so you know the food is genuine and good quality, absolutely buzzing atmosphere even though it was just a Thursday afternoon, and the Bandeja Paisa was amazing. Great portion size, a real hearty meal. Good price too, definitely recommend and will definitely go back next time I'm in Medellín!

After a long day of travel we needed a quick meal but wanted 'local'. The hotel suggested Mondongos and it was ideal - good food, swift service and great atmosphere on a Friday evening. We did not try the tripe though....

Very empty. Food was ok. Not expectacular. But pricey. Excellent service though. Sat by the window facing the street a lot of people walking by and guys doing empanadas by the side walk didnt have time to.cook them before they were gone. Will try them next time instead.
