Check the tour's route in Google Maps: My name is Juan! And I will take you through a list of food spots that I've personally chosen for their authenticity, price, and taste of course. We will cover a good range of food & snacks: from hots to colds, solids to beverages, sweet to salty, stores & street vendors, national and local, fried to baked, fruits to meats, and everything in between. ____ Before we even start with the food, we will check out some murals that allow me to tell you about Cali's local culture, events, a national martyr and the first black vice-president of Colombia. Then, for the food... STOP 1: Bakery Good colombian bread. Pandebono, buñuelo, roscón, pan galleta. There are also options with guava sweet or milk caramel, coconut, cheese, sausage, and even coffee. BONUS intermmediate stop (only during weekdays): fried chip plantains, potato chips, and salchipapa. Surprise! We will check out the Salsa Plaza, listen to some music, even do some Salsa steps for you to feel more confident to confront a night of rumba... STOP 2: salty fried goods + juices Empanada: fried corn crust, meat and potato inside. (celiac) Papa aborrajada: loaf of potato with a crusting. Papa rellena: potato with rice and meat inside. Marranita: sweet plantain with fried pork inside. Aborrajado: sweet plantain with cheese inside (veggie) Champús: beverage with corn, pineapple, lulo, bitter orange leaves and cinnamon sticks. Lulada: beverage with lulo, ice and condensed milk. Juices of assorted fruits. BONUS intermmediate stop (only during weekdays): chontaduro, fruit & juice of this regional fruit said to be aphrodisiac, great for vegans and vegetarians because it has a lot of protein. STOP 3: ice with fruits (everything veggie and gluten free!) Raspado: scraped ice with blackberry syrup Cholado: same as above + assortment of 10 fruits + ice cream Cholado explosión cítrica: shaved ice with green mango syrup + assortment of acid and citric fruits. Lulada: beverage with lulo, ice and condensed milk. Maracuyada: beverage with passion fruit, ice and condensed milk. Ensalada de frutas: assortment of 10 fruits, cheese, condensed milk. _____ All tasting options are snacks, not big dishes. But don't be fooled, some are not small and I assure: you will be full by the end. Vegans welcome. Vegetarians welcome. Gluten-free people are welcome. Meat-lovers welcome as well! There are options for everybody. The tour starts and ends in Bulevar del Rio, the city's favorite spot for its breeze and ambience. We will be walking and stopping at several food businesses and street vendors. I will guide you on what everything is and what each spot does best, and you'll let your eyes and mouth decide what you want to try. 'full belly, happy heart'. I think that's all you should now. Any questions just let me know.


Eat all what you want: all food is included with the price. We try local food amongst landmarks and historical places. Discover culture, one bite at a time.
