Coastal Colombian Food

I went to Cartagena and feel in love with the food. Arroz de coco and the seafood dishes and pan de bono to be specific. Anyone know of any places in the NY/NJ area where I can get that type of food? I'm missing it so very badly.

    1. Pandebono can be found in any Colombian bakery. There are many throughout Queens.
      They're also very easy to make at home, as are the other dishes.
