Eating the Globe: Colombia


This is the bandeja paisa I had in Orange County last October.

This is what I had yesterday.

It's not just the presentation or portion size. It simply did not taste good. When I entered the restaurant at 1:30, there were dirty plates on all but two tables. There was only one person working there, presumably the owner. Everything tasted either microwaved or reheated. The restaurant had a 3.5 star Yelp rating, but upon closer inspection, there were many 4 and 5 star reviews a few years ago and almost all the recent reviews have 1 or 2 stars.

Better luck next time.

Countries tried so far:
Africa: Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, South Africa
Asia: Afghanistan, Burma, China, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, 
Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Yemen
Europe: Bosnia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuainia, Sweden
North America: Canada, El Savador, Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago, USA
South America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela
Oceania: Tonga
