Are you on a budget and looking to tempt your
taste buds, well "Para Ti Colombia Con Sabor" Restaurant (For You Colombia With
Flavor) offers the best of both worlds.
Located on Hillside and 172nd Street, the
restaurant offers patrons savory dishes with portions fit for a king, but with a price tag
a peasant can afford.
Having been referred to the restaurant by a
close friend of mine, I decided to take my grandmother with me to do the review. Once we
entered, I couldn't help but notice the restaurant's pristine appearance. The walls are
painted blue and pink and adorned with framed pictures of the Colombian landscape. There
are two rows of wood tables on either side of the restaurant, the tables on the left side
accommodate parties of six, while the right side accommodates four to two person parties.
Once we entered the restaurant, my grandmother
and I were promptly seated and given menus. She ordered the Pork Ribs special served with
rice and I ordered the Grilled Steak served with salad, sweet plantain, rice and beans.
For drinks we both ordered Colombian Sodas
(Grape and Apple).
When the plates arrived the portions shocked
me, each plate could easily feed two people. However, it was the flavor of the dishes that
deserve praising. The Grilled Steak was amazingly seasoned and my grandmother praised the
rice (and coming from my grandmother that is the best compliment in the world). Overall,
the experience was a delight and I highly recommend it.
Tell them my grandmother sent you.
