Mondogo, Ajiaco, and Cazuelita: common soup staples for any Colombian, and must-try traditional dishes for any visitor. Itas sticks to these traditional Colombian soups, and these alone.
Let’s review: there’s Mondongo, a hearty soup made with slow-cooked diced tripe (the cleaned stomach of a cow) and a half-dozen vegetables; Ajiaco, a savory soup with chicken, large chunks of corn on the cob, and native potatoes that thicken and give the soup its characteristic dark yellow color; and Cazuelita, a mid-thick flavored stock obtained from cooking several kinds of meats and vegetables together. In this case, Itas offers both a seafood variety and a bandeja paisa version with beans, sausage, avocado and chicharron.
Whatever choice you make, the soups at Itas are big and hearty enough to suffice for an entire meal, and no dish is over 10,000 pesos! Located in the ever-popular budget gourmet sector alongside Parque Poblado, Itas is a reliable spot to find great Colombian flavors that will remind you of grandma’s old family recipe.
