This is a Colombian counter-service spot that’s part bakery and part diner, and it has a few locations in Queens. You can come here for anything from a whole cake to some empanadas with a rich beef filling, and there’s also a bandeja tipica plate with rice, beans, steak, chicharron, two types of sausage, a rice cake, avocado, and a fried egg for $12.50. If that sounds like a lot of food, that’s because it is.
