About Colombia and Pueblito Paisa
Colombian cuisine includes the cooking traditions and practices of Colombia's Caribbean shoreline, Pacific coast, mountains, jungle, and ranchlands. At Pueblito Paisa Restaurant we include a variety of traditional plates from all areas, with a main focus on food from the area called Antioquia. Bandeja paisa, (Paisa refers to a person from the Paisa Region and bandeja is Spanish for platter) with variations known as bandeja de arriero, bandeja montañera, or bandeja antioqueña, is a typical meal popular in Colombian cuisine, especially of the Antioquia department and the Paisa Region.
The restaurant is named after Pueblito Paisa. Pueblito Paisa is a small replica of a traditional Antioquian village. There are shops that sell traditional crafts as well as an observation platform with outstanding panoramic views of the city of Medellin.
