Centro Comercial Fontanar in Chia Revisited – Spectacular or not?

January 2016 Graciela: “Spectacular,” the woman said. The answer came to our question of her thoughts about the new Centro Comercial Fontanar in Chia, Colombia. On weekends, especially during the Christmas season, the place attracts large crowds. Michael: My wife and I showed up on opening day of the mall in October 2015. We based […]

Chimichurri vs Steak Sauce

December 2015 Michael: Now that I live in South America you can forget the steak sauce. Just pass me the chimichurri. And don’t try to serve me any American beef. I can understand why residents of the USA and some other countries slather a piece of beef with a sauce loaded with strong tasting elements […]

Frambuesa -Restaurant Review

One of our top three favorite places for lunch in Bogotá. Michael: “Frambuesa.” Very frequently when my wife asks me where I would like to go for lunch I choose that restaurant. The company has a couple locations in the city, but my choice always goes to the one at Cra 13A No. 93 – […]

Carbon de Palo – Restaurant Review

Leer en Español Attention to detail makes Carbon de Palo a memorable dining experience. Michael:  We are talking about the restaurant located at Avenida 19 No. 106-12.

The Wingz Bar Experience

He placed a small plastic piece against a colorful door at the end of the short hallway. “Access granted” it […]
