Know More about this tourThey say the way to a person’s heart is through the stomach. Prepare to fall in love with Bogotá on this half-day foodie tour. After hotel pickup, begin your culinary adventure with your guide at Pastelería Florida, an artisanal bakery with a classic, old-world sensibility.
Open since 1936, the snack shop-restaurant is frequented by student intellectuals and the elderly alike. Depending on availability, try typical Andean breakfast fare, like pan de bono (cheese bread), almojabanas (cheese rolls) or tamales, along with a cup of aguapanela (tea alternative made with hardened sugarcane pulp).
Then, drive to a labyrinth of winding stalls that make up Septimazo, where vendors sell an array of wares so diverse, it would be difficult to pin it down with any one theme. With street singers and musicians lining the streets, you might find Afro-Colombian beats, grains of rice engraved with names or offers for self-portraits. Follow your guide to select food stalls and bite into obleas, delicate wafer cookies commonly filled with dulce de leche or jam, which you’ll wash down with decadent chocolate santafereño, hot chocolate with a side of cheese.
Journey on to vibrant and colorful Palo Quemado market, one of the largest food markets in the city. In one place, discover the spectrum of Colombian produce, ranging from the traditional to the exotic, including vegetables, fruit, meat and fish. Inhale the scents of various herbs and admire the beautiful blooms at the flower market. Perhaps you’ll come upon a handmade item you simply have to purchase as a souvenir. Walk with your guide to local-favorite booths to bite into exotic fruits, empanadas and corn arepa (flatbread).
