What is yummy, filling, and crazy affordable? Corrientazo – or another, the Lunch Hour meal, in Medellin. During my awesome private tour with Travel-Medellin, Arthur and Eliana recommended we try something that is a true local special. The corrientazo Colombiano is what workers normally eat for lunch. To say the least, its a huge dish served in most local restaurants.
When traveling in Medellin, I highly recommend giving this plate a try.
What’s included in a Corrientazo Colombiano?
For the most part the dishes vary little from restaurant to restaurant.
Start with fresh juice and bread
Homemade soup – for us it was a veggie soup
Rice, plantains, beans and a protein. The protein can be – egg, meat, chicken or fish. Mine came with meat.
