Location: Cartagena. I got the seafood soup, followed by Colombia’s national dish, Bandeja Paisa.

This is easily the Colombian national dish and is popular with both Cafeteros (Colombians are knicknamed ‘coffee-growers’ due to the country’s worldwide prominence in this product) and tourists alike, the Bandeja Paisa is a huge food platter. It consists of grilled steak, fried pork rind and chorizo sausage on a bed of white rice and beans, all topped with a fried egg, and served with a sliced avocado and some fried plantain.
