Typical Barranquilla dish.
For the middle class Colombian’s food is based on the size and quantity of meal rather than the content, light breakfast, large lunch in the afternoon and a lighter meal (usually a sandwich) in the evening for dinner. In Barranquilla you will find that the locals tend to eat rice with almost every lunch time meal. A typical Barranquilla (or costeño - coastal) dish consists of pescado (whole fish, bones and head), Arroz con coco, ensalada (salad) and patacones.

Stay Away From

Chunchullo – Stuffed and fried poultry or cow intestines
Morcilla Rellena – Blood sausage, this is ok if you buy it in the shops, but whatever you do don’t buy it from the carts on the streets as Moricilla Rellena is not cooked hygienically (however, most foods are ok to buy from the street venders.)
