Hot Chocolate and Tamales at La Puerta Falsa

 
La Puerta Falsa

La Puerta Falsa is one of Bogotá's oldest restaurants. It's very much a hole in the wall in La Candelaria that has been serving traditional home cooked dishes, like Ajiaco and Tamales, for over two centuries.

Originally, the small restaurant didn't have a name, so locals just started calling in La Puerta Falsa, meaning fake door, inspired by the church across the street that had fake doors as a defense system in colonial times, and the name stuck.

La Puerta Falsa a beloved local spot with a small menu and even smaller seating area, frequented by everyone from regular locals to ex-presidents, famous writers, actors and chefs (like Anthony Bourdain) or anyone else in search of legit Bogotano food and drink.
