Let the colorful murals, blaring Latin music videos and Spanish-speaking waitstaff be your guides—though it might be hard to imagine putting away the bandeja típica antioqueña: an overflowing plate of beef and rice topped with bacon, beans, plantains, an arepa and a fried egg. But go ahead—you can work off the calories dancing to the merengue band in the next room. Whole fried porgy with fried tostones and yuca is another worth-the-weight-gain specialty.
