Wayuu recently joined the Orlando food scene and we received an insight on the delicious culinary adventure they offered.
We began searching the menu with drinks in our hands. They offer a range of natural juices (passion fruit smoothie pictured on the right), imported sodas, bottled water, domestic sodas, and Agüapanela (pictured on the left).
Agüapanela is a traditional Colombian sugarcane and lime drink commonly served on hot summer days. You’ll need to enjoy the natural juice smoothies fast or you’ll see the separation as seen in the photograph. Don’t worry, it’s still tasty even after the separation occurs.
Here, they serve Colombian AND Venezuelan empanadas. The top is a Venezuelan ground beef empanada and the lower is a Colombian cheese empanada. There are different options for fillings for both types of empanadas for you to choose. The Colombian empanada pockets are a sweet compared to the Venezuelan empanadas, but both are recommended for you to try.
The Bandeja Paisa is served as grilled steak, fried pork belly, fried egg, white rice, pinto or black beans, corn arepa, avocado, and sweet or green plantains. If you like protein, this is the plate for you. Each item on this dish has its own flavors and textures.
The Colombian burger is made of ground beef patty, lettuce, tomatoes, ham, cheese (white or yellow), bacon, string potatoes, pineapple sauce, and sliced grilled pineapple. The pineapple is a staple found in Colombian burgers. It adds a little sweetness to each bite as well.
The Cachapas is Venezuelan sweet corn cake served with mano cheese, white cream and white shredded cheese. This is commonly ordered as a dessert in Venezuela.
Tequenos are Venezuelan cheese sticks. They’re filled with delicious cheese in a crispy exterior. Commonly dipped in their pink sauce.
The Tequeyoyo consists of a whole sweet plantain, ham and cheese. This was an interesting find and nice to bring on trips to easily eat.
Finish off with some sorbet or dessert tequenos. There are guava and cheese or nutella filled. I love guava so it was an easy pick for me.
