A new gastronomic experience

This time I won’t talk about a specific recipe, but I would like to share with you a new gastronomic experience I had in one of my latest trip. My wife and me travelled to Colombia (country of origin of my wife) for a couple of weeks. In between family reunion and parties we had the chance to have some privacy for a week end in the beautiful town of Cartagena.

Cartagena is a beautiful town on the Atlantic cost of Colombia with a perfect hot weather all year around,  plenty of history to discover and delicious food to try.

Cartagena’s cuisine is rich and varied thanks to the mixture of cultures like Arabic, Chinese and European, and excellent products like seafood, which is cooked in delicious dishes. Typical dishes are outstanding made with seafood and seafood casseroles, soups, fish and other dishes such as arepas egg, sausages, the fritters, the higadote, nicknamed cheese, rice with coconut and seafood. Outstanding restaurants, with simple but delicious menus and affordable prices.

Drinks: nothing better than fresh fruit juices rich in this area as a handle, lulus, passion fruit, and anything else with a tropical taste..
