It was time for lunch so I decided to go in. The "meal of the day" cost 80 pesos (about $4.50 US). It included an "agua fresca" of pineapple and guava, a bowl of potato soup, and the platter below.

Colombian for Lunch
As I was walking around the pleasant neighborhood of Colonia del Valle the other day, I came across this little restaurant.
The sign says "Flavors and Traditions of Grandmother, Colombian Restaurant, Bakery and Coffee Shop". I was a little surprised to see a Colombian restaurant in Colonia del Valle. Most of the Colombian restaurants in Mexico City are located in the neighborhood of Roma Sur, which has the highest concentration of South American immigrants.
The shredded beef was rather stringy, but was nicely seasoned. The beans were very good. I mixed them with the rice. The fried bananas were tasty. (I assume that they were bananas and not plantains due to their size and sweetness.) It was a simple but good meal. The place is worth a repeat visit.
