San Pocho Restaurant 

About

Savor the flavors of Colombia at this spot in a Little Havana strip mall. There’s a small counter and two dining rooms that are usually packed as the food is plentifully portioned and inexpensive. This is true comida casara, or home cooked comfort food Colombian-style. The signature dish is sancocho, a hearty soup with potatoes, yucca, green plantain and corn on the cob slices in a rich broth with a large hunk of beef rib. The unofficial national dish is also popular, called bandeja paisa (flag platter) and comes on two plates. One has red beans cooked with cubes of pork, sweet plantain slices and a mound of rice topped with a fried egg. The other plate has a thin grilled steak, corn cake (arepa) and a scored chicharron (deep fried pork with skin). Items not on the English menu to try are tamales Tolimenses (chicken, rice and veggies steamed in a banaleaf parcel), coconut rice cooked in caramelized coconut milk with raisins and papas chorreadas (potatoes smothered in cheese, tomato and onion sauce). End with figs in syrup with caramel and slices of fresh cheese.
