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!
