BOGOTA | La Puerta Falsa is one of the oldest restaurants in Bogota, and has operating since 1816, just off Plaza de Bolivar. The focus is on simple, home-style, traditional Colombian food done right, served in a small, wood panelled venue that certainly looks like it’s been around for a while. In fact, the restaurant is still owned by the same family who started it.

The menu at La Puerta Falsa is small, with a focus on quality over quantity. They are famous for their tamales, which many consider to be the best in town. Also popular is the chocolate completo – hot chocolate served with cheese, bread and almojabana, a sort of cheese bread/sponge cake hybrid. The arroz con leche (rice pudding), and blackberry jam with cheese and arequipe (dulce de leche), are also fantastic.

While it is a popular restaurant for tourists to visit, there are also lots of locals in here too, happy that some good things never change. The restaurant is small and cramped (it seats around 20 people), and can get busy, but it’s well worth a visit. On your way out, make sure you grab a few of the traditional sweets that can be found in the front display window.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
