For now, it is time to help #StayAtHome
Tour Guatavita Tour Zipaquirá City tour Bogotá Walking tour
The food tour in La Candelaria lasts 3 hours and it is not focused on big meals or on the snacks that are easy to find, today we will taste a bit of our history through some of the most traditional and cultural flavors that the historical center of Bogotá has to offer, each one of them has a story and it is deeply rooted in our childhood.
The soups stews, grains and grilled meats that make up the bulk of Bogota’s cousin generally rank low on spice and Chile heat, while high in deep earthy flavors thanks to techniques like smoking, fermenting, wood-grilling and the use of tropical leaves and herbs, cacao and coffee. Spanish and Arab influences from centuries ago live in Colombia’s flavored pastries, rice dishes, and dairy products.
What to expect
This 3-hour food tour will begin in La Candelaria, in downtown Bogotá. After a brief introduction to the nuances of the local cuisine from our guide, the group will be taken to its first eating spot. Here you will have your first taste of food.
After a hearty meal, the group will move to desserts. Obleas will be the first stop – a healthier alternative. Then, we will go to taste two more traditional treats: chocolate with cheese.
Our eating adventure will end with a digestive coffee cup.
