Lonely Planet review for La Puerta Falsa
This is Bogotá's most famous snack shop – with displayed multicolored candies beckoning you into this tiny spot that's been in business since 1816. Some complain it's nothing but foreigners with their Lonely Planet guides these days, but don't buy it – there were no other gringos on a Saturday morning in September. The moist tamales and chocolate completo (hot chocolate with cheese, buttered bread and a biscuit; COP$5000) remain a Bogotá snack of lore.
