Colombia Tipico

If you're looking to try typical Colombian food this restaurant is the place to go. My husband ordered Bandeja Paisa & I ordered Ajiaco. We were both very pleased with our meals. Ajiaco is Colombia's take of chicken soup and it was fantastic. The meals are huge, so make sure you are hungry when you... read more

I went to Mondongos in search of some real Colombian food and this was IT. Not just touristy because it's near Parque lleras but a place where Colombians go to eat. Love the food and the outdoor seating was a plus.

The menu is basic. We tried the ajiaco and the mondongo and it was good. But we feel that we over payed for a lunch. They don't serve tap water, you have to buy it bottled and that turned me off. The bill was 20 for two. I pass by Mondongos everyday on my way to Saludpan and it often... More

This restaurant scored very highly on TA so we thought we would give it a go. Waiters were great and the place was clean but the food! This may be authentic cuisine but it really is not very good

We had the ajiaco - a hearty chicken soup with potatoes and served with rice, avocado, plantain, coriander, limes, capers and cream plus hot sauces. You mix and add ingredients to your liking. It is delicious and one was enough for two people to share.

A visit to Medellin would not be complete without a visit to Mondongos. We visited the one on Carrera 70 and we were delighted to see that they had installed an elevator for the elderly, since the waiting line at the weekend was on the staircase. Even though the place was very crowded, wait time was less than 10 minutes.... More

Try the bandeja Paisa. Really worth it. Nice service and pleasant atmosphere. On Sundays expect to line up for a table, as this seems to be a favorite with the locals. A few blocs from the Diez Hotel, on Calle 10, it is quite easy to locate. The portions are quite big, without detriment to flavor.
