Night two of the pre-wedding celebrations saw us head 45 minutes outside of Bogota to Chia (where apparently a lot of the liquor laws are relaxed) to have dinner and a dance at Andres Carne de Res. This is apparently one of Bogota’s most famous restaurant / clubs and it isn’t hard to see why. Every inch of the massive venue is covered with bright, crazy, circus-like decor, mariachi bands wander around at will and dancing on the tables is pretty much mandatory.
And the food was equally as good. We ordered a basket of starters, which included our best empanadas yet (we may be embroiled in an empanadas taste-off forcing us to try these out wherever we go). Let’s just say Colombians are genius with a deep fryer and anything to do with pork crackling. We also ordered their steak famously cooked wrapped in cloth and just thrown on the fire. This was so good I didn’t even have a chance to get a photo.
