Colombian Restaurants?

Does anyone know where I can find a Colombian restaurant in Massachussets? Preferably in Boston/Cambridge, but if there are none there, can you point me out to the ones outside of that area then?

  1. Check El Cafetal in Allston(menu on menu pages boston) or Pollos Mr. Mario's in East Boston.

    1. El Penol in East Boston.

      E Boston has a number of Central and South American restaurants and markets. I bought some very good, home made Colombian chorizo at a little market a few doors up Meridian St from Maverick Sq

      1. I've eaten a couple of times at Camino Real, on Harvard Ave. in Allston. The food was quite tasty, with large portions and reasonable prices.

        Camino Real
        48 Harvard Ave # 50, Allston, MA

        1. east boston - el penol, el jardin, la chiva
          allston - camino real, el cafetal
          revere - la fonda paisa

          1. I thought El Cafetal closed earlier this year. Non-payment of taxes, I read.

              They closed briefly in May, had signs up for an equipment auction, and then almost immediately afterwards reopened under the same name and underwent considerable sprucing up. They're definitely open and running now.
