Buñuelos y pandebonos

Buñuelos are one of my favorite snacks, and I’ve tried them all over Bogotá. What is a Colombian buñuelo? The dough is made of cassava flour, grated costeño cheese, and milk. Then the dough is shaped into balls and fried. How can you be sure to get the best Colombian buñuelo? First, they absolutely must be fresh. Buy them at a place that specializes in them, since they will always have a recently fried batch ready to be eaten. Also, buñuelos shouldn’t be too dense, although they shouldn’t be full of air, either. They should have a texture somewhere in between – crispy on the outside, soft and hot on the inside. To me they somehow seem tastier downtown, in the heart of Bogotá, where I feel the connection with the history of the city. I found Café y Pandebono, a little place on the walk between the Gold Museum and the National Museum, and was so impressed by their fresh buñuelos that I rarely buy them anywhere else. Try them, and let me know what you think!
