It may be unassuming, but La Puerta Falsa is as authentic as it gets in Bogotá. The quaint two-story eatery is housed in a 400-year-old building and is the best place to enjoy an old-fashioned Santa Fe tamale. Other popular choices are salchichas (sausages), eggs with bread, agua panela with queso fresco, and an assortment of typical Colombian pastries and desserts. Bogotá’s oldest functioning restaurant, the family business has been passed down from generation to generation since 1816. Its location, between La Candelaria and Plaza Bolívar, makes it a convenient breakfast or lunch choice. Credit cards not accepted.
