Amazing experience with David!
Aug 2018 • Couples
My experience with David was absolutely amazing to say the very least. It was incredibly easy to get to his hose via public transportation. When we arrived we were greeted by David and his girlfriend, who were both fantastic hosts. Their home was beautiful and it was such a pleasure walking around his garden and hearing about his restaurant business. We felt very welcome and at home with David, and he had lots of great stories to share.

In terms of his cooking, he was flawless. He had a large bowl of fruit that he shared with us so that we could sample the local fruits in Colombia. Then we began helping him making the dessert portion of the menu. He gave us both jobs which were fun and easy to assist with. It was a joy to see his passion for cooking and have him explain why he does certain things.

The two dishes he prepared for us were fantastic. The pork belly was such a treat, and the fish and rice dish was outstanding. My boyfriend states that it was the best thing he ate the entire time we were in Colombia and I agree. At the end of the meal we were absolutely stuffed and so happy!

I think traveling spoon is a fantastic option for people traveling and hoping to meet new people in a foreign city. It is such a fantastic way to experience a culture and I would absolutely recommend this experience to my friends and family moving forward, and especially would recommend David!
