3. Elektra restaurant
Food, Punk and Innovation, are the three words that describe this amazing restaurant. The restaurant’s menu is not very extensive, but the few dishes it has are finger-licking. They usually serve fast food but they have innovations of pasta dishes. If you are going to visit this place, you have to try the cheese balls, which the restaurant’s creator, Denise Monroy, defined as Non-Dairy, due to its great resemblance to a dairy mozzarella. After this delicious appetizer, you are ready to try the different types of sandwich or La Perra, a hot dog with a lot of personality. To close your visit to Elektra, it is mandatory to order the peanut butter cake or the chocolate cake, which, as defined by the restaurant itself, are delicious.
4. Mestizo Vegano restaurant
The food at this incredible restaurant located in the center of Bogota is a true gastronomic journey through Latin America. Since chef Nando Calderon, the creator of this restaurant, traveled through several Latin American countries, he visualized a space where he could combine all this learning. What he did is create Vegan Mestizo, a place for everyone to feel like at home. This is where the magic begins and makes us prepare our taste buds to discover the contrasts of flavor that exist from Patagonia to Mexico.
