Picada Colombiana at Tequilazo 43 West 46th Street NYC

jonkyo | Jun 2, 2012 10:20 AM

This classic Colombian dish of cut (picada) meats (chicken; beef; sausage; pig skin) potatos and plantaina, yuka, is so good, but for more than one person (26 usd). The plate comes piled high.

Tequilazo is a Columbian Restaurant with plenty of seating on the second floor away from the music and bar on the first floor, for those wanting to dine in a proper fashion, but the bar area is also quite proper, and food is served there too. Music is a lot of Buchata and other Mexican and Latin sounds, classics, contemporary and pop .

I plan on checking out more of the Colombian dishes at this restaurant (search the menu online), who's clientele are for the most part South and Central American. They have Colombian Nachos which are fried plantain with cheese and meat (chicken or beef). The wait staff will tell you they are a Colombian and Mexican restaurant, as does the sign, so the typical Mexican fare takes room up on the menu.

Arepa is offered both as a breakfast dish but also with pork rinds as an appitizer (Chicharron con Arepa).
