La Calera is a beautiful town, ringed by hills, just a few kilometers distance from Bogota. You can find some nice typical Colombian food stalls on the sides of the main road when you drive by. “Las Arepas” (corn cake) made of peeled corn and stuffed with cheese, are very popular and also my favorites ones.
The corn kernels are peeled through a process where they use ashes. Then they are shaped along with grated cheese, as shown in the video, and cooked thanks to a very curious wheel mechanic system.
The result is spectacular!!!
If you have the chance to pass by. Make a stop and enjoy one of these!
