Cartagena, Colombia: Cheap Amazing Eats?

I will be visiting a friend who is living in Bogota, Colombia in the end of March and we will be visting Bogota, Santa Marta and Cartagena for a couple of days.

Does anyone know of any cheap and amazing eats in Cartagena in particular, emphasis on the cheap? I've already heard all I need to know about La Cevicheria (too much hype; I think I'll pass) and all the other restaurants listed on the NYC Travel section for Cartagena. They are really much higher prices than I am looking for anyway.

Thanks for the suggestions!

  1. I've never been to Cartagena, but I am sure that there's some great stuff there. I hope you report back here about what you end up eating, since I'd love to know what the cheaper foods there are like!

    1. We had a wonderful trip to Colombia last February. Here's a link to my trip report -

      I'm not sure what 'cheap' means (one person's cheap is another person's expensive), but we ate in a mix of high and low priced restaurants.
