What you'll do

Take a bite out of the melting pot of metropolitan Medellín one new flavor at a time, like digging into the food of the people bandeja paisa, or try hearty staple stew-like sancocho (or even tripe soup if you’re feeling brave!). Get your sugar fix from a crispy corn pancake-like arepas, topped with a good ol' chunk of cheese, and cool down from the Colombian heat with fantastically frothy Limonada de Coco or a bite of fresh tropical fruit from a downtown market. Hmmm, do we smell deep-fried empanadas? Spicy aji salsa would go excellent with that and sip it down with freshly squeezed orange juice from a street stall. End the day in the heart of the lush Botanical Garden, where a minimalist villa, hearty bean casserole, and a glass of refreshing cola-like refajo await.

Where you’ll go

Tickle your tastebuds on a mazed journey of flavors, winding past aroma-filled streets in the heart of the city towards bandeja paisa specialists Hatoviejo Centro or strolling past a palm tree-lined plaza to Cadé Botero - hello, hearty soup! Pop to a nearby street away from the tourists, where cloud-like arepas float from out the kitchen and gooey melting cheese is a must. Do as the locals would and head to Minorista food market downtown, overflowing with tropical fruits you never knew existed, and vendors offering a drink to ease the Colombian heat. Pass sellers with fried goodness-filled empanadas with a Medellín twist, towards minimalistic In Situ eatery in the Botanical Garden: get ready, you'll want a second helping of the modernized Colombian cuisine. 

    • Release your inner foodie with 6 - 8 tastes of delicious local specialties you'll want a second helping of.
    • Wander along charming streets in the heart of the city, stopping at some of your host’s favourite eateries.
    • A sip of Aguardiente here, a taste of spicy aji salsa there, and top it all off with a hearty bean casserole.
