Restaurant Review: La Puerta Falsa in Bogota, Colombia

I’ve been to La Puerta Falsa in Bogota several times…and it never disappoints. A few weeks ago, I brought my wife and child to my favorite Colombian eatery. Another winner! La Puerta Falsa is the oldest restaurant in Bogota (founded in 1816) and it oozes with charm. The best time to go is for breakfast.

What did the Major order? Very simple…

1.) Start with a hot chocolate, piece of bread, and piece of cheese:

bread and chocolate

2.) Then, move on to the Tamales:


3.) Finish it off with some Colombia desserts:

dulces de la puerta falsa

Needless to say, this is a day’s worth of food. I will usually have something small in the afternoon: i.e a piece of bread with coffee.

coffee and bread

Whoop…there it is. The perfect Colombian breakfast. It’s been shared by thousands of Colombians and tourists for well over a hundred years.
