"EMPANADAS" Colombia Restaurant Tip by swesn

Colombia Restaurants: 40 reviews and 37 photos

'Empanadas' are pastries of various fillings that are very common in South America. From Argentina to Bolivia, they are available and are very popular snacks indeed. However, in each country, they are of a slightly different style.

In Colombia, the style here is that at the 'empanada' shop, there is a huge spread of sauces on the counter. So many sauces that it boggles the mind.

It is not uncommon to see the locals standing next to the counter and for each bite, they drop a different sauce in their 'empanadas'. Excellent choice. Note that some of the sauces are very spicy indeed.
