Aspiring connoisseurs of chicharrón (pork rinds) and lovers of the classic bandeja paisa should head to this classic neighborhood joint in Envigado (which nudges up to Poblado). The rib-sticking fried strips of pork rind sprawl across the plate like a T-Rex fossil, with every remaining inch loaded with mounds of rice, morcilla (Colombian blood sausage), beans, plantain, and chorizo. There’s a homey, welcoming vibe to the place, especially on Sundays, when locals line up for their shots of aguardiente as a preamble to the feast.
