Bogotá Shared 2-6 people 2,5 hours Spanish / English
New Colombian cuisine gets cooked daily inspired by our geography celebrating the direct relation with it in vibrant and ephemeral plates that get renovated each season. Diverse weathers, soils, regions, producers and fruits of Colombia are the raw material for a generation of cooks that take advantage of the diversity, an extraordinary treasure that we count on to make it shine at the table.
Each of them is a pioneer and advocate of this link. They have all taken on the commitment of sustainability with a pride that shows on their menus where local produce and purveyors are the real stars. Their approach has granted them a place on lists of magazines and specialized guides as must-see spots.
What you’ll live
Chapinero has always had a love affair with creativity; in this walkable bohemian district, imaginative chefs and bartenders work with the most unsuspected ingredients of our geography: artisanal cheeses from nearby farms, ants, chilies, Amazonian fruits, sustainable fishing, micro-lot coffees, artisanal liquors… just a welcome into a world of unimaginable flavors.
Walk a few blocks with us and breathe in the ambiance of the hottest district in Bogotá, while we visit the restaurants of three emerging chefs that serve up their best market cuisine.
Join us in this intimate tour of must-see restaurants no one wants to miss.
