BOGOTÁ, COLOMBIA FOOD & DRINK: CAPITAL COCINA Y CAFE

This is hands down my favorite restaurant in La Candelaria. This is the very first place that my colleagues brought me upon my arrival. This is the first thing I ate:

Image
Vegetarian Sandwich. So massive and filling, I always have to take half home.
Image
Even the water is classy
Image
Patacones, appetizer. Dip them in guacamole. Yum!

    1. Haha! True, true! But, I’ve only really been doing so much graffiti lately because it is so prevalent here in Bogota! I’m sure each new locale will offer up something a little ‘different,’ so I’ll keep you on your toes, haha!
