Something that amazes me when I walk around Bogota is street food. Now, I don’t mean just any street food, but food that shows the ingenuity and creativity of Colombian people. Here, foods that perhaps should only be made in a restaurant are taken to the street, made right in front of the client, taste good, and as a bonus, are really cheap.
Buñuelos are one of my favorite Colombian foods, and I’ve tried them all over Bogota. A Colombian buñuelo is made of cassava flour, grated costeño cheese, and milk, and is then shaped into balls and fried.
