Learning about the regional nuances of Colombian cuisine


Kola Romana ice-cream with coconut cake 😀

For those who have had enough of beans and potatoes from the Andean cuisine, costeña food offers a reprieve with its interesting fusion of Caribbean presence (fish-bias) and Arabic influence (which includes falafel and aubergine-filled tamales!). The sweet and fluffy coconut rice and round, ball-shaped butifarra sausages certainly make an interesting change from plain rice and the all-time-popular chorizo!

So the other day I had the chance to try Caribbean Colombian cuisine at Diana Garcia,  a busy lunch spot that traces its origin to the coast. My favorite take was a rare dessert of a pretty bubblegum-pink Kola Romana ice-cream (ice-cream made from the Northern coasts’ favorite bright red soda) with a coconut cake  that simply puts a smile on your face. Unfortunately the pictures didn’t come out well so you will have to use your imagination!
