A creditable Cartagena lunch (without lizards)

November 18, 2010 • 1:46 pm

Today’s almuerzo was at a terrific local place: La Mulata. This is my second meal there, and I recommend it most highly.  First a small bowl of soup, then a huge bowl of the famous potato-and-chicken soup, ajiaco, and a tall frosty glass of “limonada de coco,” a lemonade heavily infused with coconut and milk. There are even more tropical fruit juices here than in Bogotá.

Total damage: the equivalent of $5.  This place has classy food at bargain prices.

  1. What kind of soup was the small one? We want details, man!

    I wonder how they mix lemonade and milk without curdling the milk. It sounds really good – a little ice cream chain in San Francisco called Uncle Gaylord’s made something called “lotus cream” that was lemon and almond and honey – in a milky base, that is, it wasn’t sherbet. It was soooooooooo good.
