Café
$
“La Puerta Falsa is a Bogotá institution and perhaps the oldest restaurant and snack bar in the city. It isn’t just a restaurant, it’s an experience for anyone looking for authentic and traditional Colombian fare.You can’t miss out on their hot chocolate or agua de panela. Even though they serve small plates, we suggest going with an empty stomach and trying a little bit of everything they have to offer. Sun: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Mon: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Tue: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Wed: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Thu: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Fri: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Sat: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm”

Neighborhood
“This is another great neighborhood in Bogota. During the daylight you can walk around its narrow and colonial-style streets, this is a natural citie's watch over. Visit the traditional Market "La Perseverancia" and try amazing local food which is affordable and tasty. Then at night la Macarena becomes a gastronomic hipster-style place, offering a variety of international offers and thematic restaurants.”
