    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. ;)

    Great Colombian dishes and Aguila to wash it down. Very small cafe with tight seating. The staff is wonderful.

    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.

    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).
  • KristiaMarie P.
    I love sweet plantains, so I always try it if it's on the menu. This place does it best!! Also, their chicharron is like Filipino Lechon Kawali.

    Vegetarian stuffed peppers are great. Ask for the spicy sauce.

    When I've been here, the food always feels like its home cooked. Try the waiter recommended Bandeja Paisa for an interesting mix of flavor or the ropa vieja for a safe bet

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    El ajiaco bueno, el chicharron, sabroso y las empanaditas de pollo, ricas. Obviamente por la localizacion el precio de la comida es alto. Lugar pequeno y acogedor de servicio bastante eficiente.
