    Make sure you order something with chicharron. If you need lots of protein, the Bandeja Paisa does not disappoint. The small is more than enough. Try the one of the juices, (I suggest the guanabana).

    Finally, Colombian cuisine in Manhattan! Their coffee and empanadas are great and I love that they play vallenato music. But their arepa with pollo desmechado and buñuelos are disappointing.

    The Arepa with shredded meat and extra avocado was great and tasty. Real Colombian food, they even have traditional Colombian beverages. It's cozy and nice for q casual dinner.

    Delicious, authentic Colombian food in the UES! The juices are amazing; try the Guayaba juice. Also, the beef empanadas are delicious and definitely worth a try. Looking forward to eating here again!

    White arepa with mozz cheese was pretty good! But not the same white cheese they use in Venezuela :/ excellent coffee too. Nice gem on the UES.

    Add chicken for 6 usd on the cranberry and goat cheese salad. The vinaigrette is great.

    First time trying ajiaco and it was great. Also don't order the small empanadas they are too good for such a tiny portion. ;)

    Take the Cazuela De Frijoles as main, which goes perfect with a cool Columbia beer!

    Great coffee. And don't get me started on food. This is my breakfast place, and just had lunch for first time - empanada and sancocho soup. Ridiculously delicious.

    Good enough if you don't want to go to Jackson heights. But they ALWAYS forget a part of the order and it takes such a long time to prepare your take-out.

    Try the agua de panela with lemon over ice, it's great & kind of like a Colombian lemonade :)

    The food is good enough if you don't want to venture to Jackson heights. But they ALWAYS forget part of an order and they take forever to prepare everything.

    Terrible food and worse staff. Empty restaurant! The owner then had the audacity to complain my daughter sleeping in her stroller took up to much space in the EMPTY RESTAURANT. AVOID! TERRIBLE!!!!

    The ropa vieja was the worst ever. Dry, bland and without beans. No black beans, only red and it was an extra $7.50. You’d be an idiot to eat here.
