Best Colombian Food In the GTA?

I've been to Columbus Bakery and thought it was wonderful (great Bunuelos like I used to have when I was a kid). Now I'm wondering what you hounds think of Los Arrieros, Mi Tierra and the other Colombian bakery up in Forest Hill? Any others I've missed worth knowing about? Gracias!

  1. I have never been to Los Arrieros, tried to get take out there once but they did not offer it. The place is on Jane and Anette, and always seemed busy and full of Columbians when it was open. I take that as a good sign when people of the same culture are eating at a restaurant that serves there homelands food. I, too, am curious if it is good or not? Maybe this thread will inspire me to return

    1. Yeah- one Colombian pal told me she quite liked it. I'll have to take my mom there and try it out. When I do, I'll report back to you...

      1. La Paisa moved east to St Clair W near Arlington. I haven't been in yet, but it had a good rep when it was at Caledonia. It might be worth checking out.

        1. Thanks Mikeb- I actually saw it when I was filming across the street at La Cocina de Dona Luz (which is Peruvian and they make a FINE Pisco Sour!). I'll have to check that out too... Wondering if anyone's actually eaten there though.

          1. I went to Mi Tierra with a friend of mine who lives in Colombia, and he thought it was really pretty good. I enjoyed the food, as well, but it's my first experience with Colombian, so I can't comment more specifically on whether it was particularly authentic or particularly good.
