My best friend is Colombian and her family travels from Maryland to come here and load up on Colombian delicacies! I have been lucky enough to come here several times with them, and am so grateful that pandebono has been introduced into my life!When we went this weekend I got several almojabanas (Colombian cheese breads) to bring home. They're very similar to pandebono, but they're just round (not donut shaped). I was willing to wait for pandebono to come out fresh, but evidently once they're sold out then that's it. Kind of a bummer. I also tried a cake (I think it translated literally to 'black cake') that is made with (lots of) wine, raisins and nuts. My friend also found blood sausage to bring back home to her family.It is a little bit intimidating if you're not a Spanish speaker. There was some minimal English used during our transaction, but the default is Spanish and it could be very awkward without someone there to translate for me. I don't think of that as a negative, though - I actually appreciate the authenticity of the establishment, and the fact that the Colombian community has a place like this to enjoy the tastes of home. Also parking can be a little bit of an issue. With some patience you can usually find street parking but it is a VERY busy, bustling area.
