Indeed, just the look of the white frothy soup dish, changua, may be a shock to anyone.
Changua’s a prominent member on Bogotá’s breakfast menu. It makes up city’s psyche. Talk to any Bogotanos (most, anyway) about changua and it’s likely that they’ll give you a longing, happy look. It’s the ultimate comfort food of which status in Bogotano’s hearts cannot be under-estimated.
The sound of the recipe ingredients can freak away the most courageous, on the par with cheese and ice-cream. With milk, spring onion, coriander, floating soggy bread, melty mozzarella and a soft poached egg as you dig into the bottom, it tastes better than it sounds. A must-try food when you’re in town, waking you up from heavy-duty partying, though you may end up only having a sip of it.
