For just over two centuries, La Puerta Falsa has been serving traditional Colombian food to hungry patrons. The tiny snack shop/restaurant barely sits 20 people, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in home-cooking and a palpable sense of history.
The shop is located in an old colonial home a block from Bogota’s Plaza de Bolivar. Walk in and you’ll see a wooden bar to the right, with space enough to seat 10 people. Follow a small staircase to the upper level and you’ll find three or four tables where loyal customers—including politicians, artists, and scientists—have tucked into tamales and bowls of ajiaco soup (made of chicken and potatoes) since the place opened in 1816.
