I love this place - it is old school Medellin. Named after their signature dish which had three different types of meat, you can imagine what the menu looks like. Against my better judgement, I had the pork belly (junior size) and usually that is...More

If you want a real "bandeja paisa", this is the place. 100% typical food. You won't forget their crispy, savoury "chicharrón", as well the "carne en polvo" (powder meat) and the red beans. This was a local business that became famous for its quality and...More

I was told this was the best place to go in Medellin for chicharron. I enjoy a nice plate of chicharron with a fresh garden salad and side of delicious avocado. Would return again. Also purchased some fresh bing cherries from a side walk vendor.

Except for the beans which were excellent,the rest of the food very good. Friendly service, cold beer and some international coworkers got to eat as a local.
