Blankita is a bustling hub on the corner of Seven Sisters serving home-cooked Colombian food that’s as warming in winter as it is satisfying in summer. Stews, soups, frijoles, and empanadas are all on the menu and it’s virtually impossible to leave the easygoing indoor-outdoor setup without lazily rubbing your stomach. Grilled steak or pork with rice and plantain is a standard, but beef tongue is one of the standout dishes. Blankita’s version is covered in a fruity and mildly spiced yellow sauce, slowly cooked with stodgy and starchy potatoes, and sweet onions in there as well. The star, though, is the meat. A careless whisper could break the pink strands down and a mouthful alongside rice, plantain, and a dollop of Blankita’s sharp red chilli salsa will have you humming with happiness.
