Hato Viejo Restaurante Medellin Reviews
Typical Paisa and Colombian cuisine. Sep 25, 2009
Fancy Colombian restaurant with a lovely view of the city and like in all typical restaurants in Medellín and surrounding areas, the most common plate is called “Bandeja Paisa”, the translation is difficult: Big platter made in Antioquia (“Paisa” is how Colombians call the people from this mountain region), and consist in a magical combination that you won’t believe: with rice, red beans, grounded dry meat, sweet plantain, chorizo (spicy chunky pork sausage), morcilla (is best if you don’t know, but is an wonderful blood sausage), crispy pork skin deep fried, avocado, arepa (like a fat flour tortilla), and one fried egg on top.
The only way that you can digest this plate is having one or two shots of Aguardiente (Fire water), a distilled liquor from sugar cane.
And for dessert you may have Mazamorra (sweet soup of corn grains in milk).
If you have this typical lunch, you won’t need diner….
It's a bit expensive for locals but not for international tourist.
