EATING OUT
----------
RESTAURANTS OFFER INTERNATIONAL CUISINE AND TABLE SERVICE
IS THE NORM. LOCAL DISHES ARE VARIED WITH A TOUCH OF
SPANISH INFLUENCE.

TYPICAL MEALS
-------------
RECOMMENDED DISHES ARE THE CHICKEN STEW WITH POTATOES,
CREAM, CAPERS AND CORN ON THE COB, OTHERWISE KNOWN IN
COLOMBIA AS AJIACO. AREPAS ARE CORN PANCAKES MADE WITHOUT
SALT AND EATEN INSTEAD OF BREAD. ONE OF THE FAVOURITE MEAT
DISHES IS BANDEJA, ACCOMPANIED BY CASSAVA, RICE, FRIED
PLANTAIN AND RED BEANS. SEAFOOD, KNOWN AS MARISCOS, IS
PLENTIFUL ON THE CARIBBEAN COAST, WITH LOBSTERS BEING
RENOWNED FOR THEIR FLAVOUR.

TYPICAL DRINKS
--------------
COLOMBIANS RARELY DRINK ALCOHOL WITH MEALS. GASEOSA IS THE
NAME GIVEN TO NON-ALCOHOLIC, CARBONATED DRINKS. FOR A SMALL
BLACK COFFEE, YOU ASK FOR A TINTO, BUT THIS TERM IS ALSO
USED FOR RED WINE/VINO TINTO. COLOMBIAN WINES ARE OF POOR
QUALITY, BUT CHILEAN AND ARGENTINIAN WINES ARE AVAILABLE IN
RESTAURANTS AT A REASONABLE PRICE. COLOMBIA PRODUCES MANY
DIFFERENT TYPES OF RUM. CANALAZO, A RUM BASED COCKTAIL TAKEN
HOT OR COLD IS RECOMMENDED. THERE ARE NO LICENSING HOURS.
