Sample this delicious local soup

This hearty soup is a favourite in Bogota and popular with visitors as well. Guaranteed to energize you, it contains chicken, corn, capers and at least three types of potato. It is served with rice and avocado and is delicious and healthy.

The Candelaria offers some good options for Ajiaco just off Plaza de Bolivar but they can be a bit expensive and crowded. Our favourite is Kaffarte, a delicious almuerzo restaurant that offers great value. Their mini paisa is highly recommended too!
