December 9, 2017 // 6 Comments

Now that I’ve been on a coffee farm tour and on the Flavors of Bogota coffee shop tour, I thought I’d write a post on my favourite coffee shops in Bogota. Specialty coffee is the finest quality of coffee, cultivated, roasted and prepared by experts to produce the best cup of coffee you’ve ever tasted. I’ve always been more of a tea-drinker [more]

Vegetarian restaurants in Bogota

December 1, 2017 // 5 Comments

I’ve heard a few people say that it’s not easy being a vegetarian in Colombia, as meat is such a big part of the Colombian diet. Indeed, I’ve also heard some Colombians say that a meal without any meat is not a proper meal! I’m not a vegetarian but I’m not a big meat-eater either. So eating meat a few times a week in Bogota, when in [more]

The great thing about this blog is that it has put me in touch with so many great people. The other day I received a message from Alejandra, who wanted to tell me about the organic bread and other types of bread that she and her friends bake.

My intention is not to encourage readers to adopt my bad habits (!) but to give you some ideas about places to eat in Bogota when you’re just not in the [more]

Domicilios Bogota: how to order food in Bogota

October 22, 2016 // 2 Comments

Before I moved to Bogota, I used to cook for myself a few nights a week, and then microwave ‘healthy’ ready-meals on the nights when I couldn’t be bothered to cook. Ready meals (beyond pizza and lasagne) have not arrived in Colombia yet, so it wasn’t long before I started plunging into the virtual abyss of domicilios. The concept Un [more]

Bogota Food Tour with La Mesa: food.. and more!

August 10, 2016 // 0 Comments

When La Mesa Food Tours invited me to join them on their Bogota food tour, I was intrigued. I’ve been living in Bogota on and off for nearly three years now, and thought I knew the essentials about Colombian food. That said, due to my sensitive stomach, I have always been wary of buying street food, so I suspected that I still had plenty to discover about [more]
