ZONE: Centro (Downtown)
The Casa Vieja Restaurant was founded in 1964 and is one of the most traditional of Bogota.
There, in elegant and sober dining rooms, decorated with top quality antiques, the most representative dishes of Colombian cuisine are served. Which can also be called criolla cuisine since, as other Latin American cuisines, has both Spanish and Hispanic roots.
It is no coincidence that the restaurant's motto is "Rescue daily authentic and traditional flavors of the Colombian food", since this restaurant is famous among the Bogota inhabitants for its authentic Colombian dishes.
The menu includes the typical Ajiaco Santafereño with chicken (soup made of three different kinds of potatoes and the most famous dish in the gastronomy of Bogota), which is accompanied by capers, corn, avocado, heavy cream and guascas.
Other delicious criollo dishes served in Casa Vieja are the sobrebarriga (flank steak), served with fried plátano, potatoes and yucca chorreadas and guacamole; fried fish served with coconut rice, patacón (slice of fried banana) and salad; Antioqueño beans (typical of the department of Antioquia, whose capital is Medellín) accompanied by white rice, sausage, ground beef, pork rind, plátanos, fried egg and avocado.
The dessert selection is also broad. Diners can choose from brevas con arequipe (figs with caramel) or postre de natas (cream dessert), among others.
The restaurant has a total of 4 branches in Bogotá. One is located in the Usaquén area. The other branch is located in the Zona G. A third is located on the Avenida Jimenez, in La Candelaria, the heart of Bogota. The headquarters is located in the Centro Internacional, on the carrera 10 with calle 26 (26th Street), and is frequented by executives working in this area.
In short, this is the ideal place to enjoy the local food.
