This restaurant is a little hole in the wall, if you blink you might miss this place. Although it is small, it is very clean, the service is excellent and the food is great and inexpensive. The food is pretty authentic and they serve you quite a huge plate. The walls are decorated with Colombian decorations (map of Colombia, flag, religious items, and pictures of Colombia).

Favorite Dish: My favortie dish is the Bistec a caballo (no its not horse meat) it is beef cooked with onions, tomatoes in like a stew. It is served with white rice, beans, yucca, red potatoes, and tomatoes and avocados and a fried egg on top. I ordered my favorite platanos maduros (sweet fried plantains) and una colombiana (colombian soda). And of course it wouldnt be a Colombian meal without Arepas!
