Know Before You Go
Today, La Puerta Falsa is well loved as one of the oldest and most traditional restaurants in Bogota, and it steadfastly hangs on to its traditional values. It's not flash, the menu is limited, service can be slow, and you won't find tacky souvenirs or other tourist trappings on display. As for the menu, La Puerta Falsa is best known for its ajiaco soup and its tamales, which are often ranked among the best in the city. It also sells traditional sweets and chocolate completo, a traditional Colombian hot chocolate with cheese, buttered bread, and a biscuit. Opening hours are roughly from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, but don't expect that to be set in stone.
