Sine meeting my friend Steven, I’ve gotten more into Columbian food. I hadn’t ever really eaten it before, but he always makes a point to bring me to Columbian restaurants. He recently took me to a restaurant in Orlando called Oh! Que Bueno. His parents are from Columbia and his mom always cooks delicious and authentic Columbian food. I knew going in that if he was taking me here, it must be pretty good.
I wanted to try a little bit of everything so I ordered the bandeja paisa. It’s a special dish that comes with steak, rice, beans, fried pork skin, sausage, fried sweet plantains, black sausage, fried egg and corn cake. This dish offers some traditional dishes, so I was glad I would be getting a taste of everything.
When the meal came out, it was huge. Steven told me he’s been to restaurants that serve this dish with twice the food. I tried everything and it was all delectable. The Columbian sausage and fried sweet plantains were my favorite. I also really enjoyed the steak but I would have preferred it to me more rare. The arepa wasn’t my favorite – I’ve had better ones. I also wasn’t a fan of the black sausage, but that’s because I don’t like black sausage in general – it’s blood sausage so it’s infused with blood. I was overall very happy with my meal.
The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We definitely got a lot of food for our money. The menu was also in Spanish first and English second so I figured that was a good sign it would be authentic. The service was decent and could have been better, but I would still go back again.
