La Fonda Antioquena
La Fonda Antioquena has been around for many years and with good reason. Top of it's game in Columbian cuisine this little spot sits on Steinway near Broadwy down the block from El Mundo Department store(cheap and sometimes good). Recently renovated with guacho gear on the walls, if you want hearty fare and to practice your Spanish this is the place. I was here for lunch Friday and ordered the soup of the day which was vegetable in a cup for $5.95. The rustic soup arrived loaded with veggies and a piece of corn from the cobb and surprise a piece of flank steak in a brown broth. The side dish that accompanies the soup is a fresh cabbage slaw, limes and white rice. Those are meant to put in the soup and it was filling and delish. A passion fruit shake(batido) with milk made for a satisfying meal. Lots of meats, chickens, a few salads, daily soups and some little plates called hungry killers round out the menu. A plain stinky bathroom downstairs could use some updating.
