Corrientazo: Most Traditional Colombian Food from Medellin – The Lunch Hour

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?
