Bandeja Paisa & possibly other columbian foods/restaurants in the bay area?

Hey guys, I'm from the east coast and used to goto my neighborhood columbian restaurant to get a dish called "Bandeja Paisa" and it was extremely meaty and starchy and overall just yummy goodness. Started craving this dish recently and couldn't find any decent places that had it. Was wondering if anyone could recommend where I can get this dish? I saw "El Majahual Restaurant" on Valencia in the mission but has some of the worst reviews I've ever seen despite their 4 stars on yelp. I don't care if the restaurant serves other things, I just want this specific dish alone. I am willing to visit any establishment, be it a cafe, a seedy neighborhood restaurant, a food truck, someones house (maybe)? I'm just about to give up on the search for this dish and might just start heating up the fryer in my kitchen. But before I do all that, is there something someone can tell me about where to find or possibly order this dish online if need be? Lol, I know it sounds weird to someone who's never had it but if you don't like deep fried pork skins with a slab of steak and avocado's with crispy fresh arepas, to me you're just insane.

Thank you for the feedback in advance y'all!
