How much do you know about Colombian cuisine? Join us on this Medellin street food tour as we visit Envigado, part of the Metropolitan Area of Medellín. You may not know, but Envigado is famous for keeping paisa traditions alive through its typical architecture and gastronomy, and you will have a chance to taste dishes from various traditional local recipes.
Duration: 4 hours (Tour starts at 10:00 am)
Start/End location: Medellin, Colombia
Miscellaneous: Tour is available in English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French and Dutch
You will be picked up at your hotel, and be transported to El Parque de Envigado (Envigado’s Park), where you will be able to get a glimpse of Santa Gertrudis Parish, and the life around the park. You will then head to your first gastronomic stop to taste buñuelos, empanadas, or Pan de Yucas. After that, you will then travel northwards to see how different types of arepas are made – you will also be able to see how corn is transformed into different products, and taste them completely fresh.
You will then taste the sweet side of traditional recipes at 2 different stops, the first being Salpicon – a fruity refreshing beverage that contains tropical fruits; and the second being the famous Obleas, a large slim cookie filled with cheese, arequipe (a milk-based sweet cream) and marmalade.
After that, we will walk a few blocks eastwards for the final and most famous paisa dish: Bandeja Paisa. This generous dish is a reflection of Paisas’ warm hospitality and their interest in giving the best to their visitors. Finally, after a cup of coffee, you will be brought back to your hotel.
