Worth the risk... – This is an excellent place to get good, affordable and, most importantly, authentic Latin food. The menu draws from a variety of Latin cuisines, mainly Columbian, Cuban and Puerto Rican. The Argentinian-style steak was delicious. My boyfriend is Cuban, so we were particularly pleased with the quality of the croquetas: tasty and traditional. He was also especially happy that they had batidos, as they are rare back home in California. The portions are large, giving ample opportunity for an at-home sequel if you aren't compelled to eat until its gone.
The service was fair; a little slow, but pleasant. Nothing to inhibit enjoyment.
Don't let the bad neighborhood deter you from visiting. The bus goes right to the restaurant and the activity of the place and the ample lighting are comforting. Just don't get lost.
Worth the drive, Very good latin food. – I just ordered the fish. They gave me good bread, tasty salad, rice, black beans, plantains. The fish was very tasty (baked). Next time I'll tell them to hold the butter and the salt a little. The fresh juices are excellent (i had fresh squeezed orange). Parking is tough.
I went again, soup and meat. Soup was outstanding flavor. One minus was that the flowers had passsed their expiration date and were a little smelly. Nothing to diminish the flavor of the food but a little annoying.
Best Mofongo!! and best Mojito!!! – I like the Mofongo and the Mojito, but I do not Know why the menu said Cuban Food, when is really Puertorrican Food.
Mofongo, Ara?itas, Tostones, Arroz con Pollo, Biftec Encebollado, Asopao de Camarones, Arroz con Camarones, Higado Encebollado, Chuleta Frita, Pernil, Chicharrones de Pollo, Casquitos de Guayaba con queso, Flan, Rellenos de papas, ect. sound that you are in a Puertorrican Restaurant. Why do the owners of Tierra Colombiana, refer to all as Cuban Dishes ????
Big describes this restaurant, its menu, the portions and the diner's stomach after a meal at this Cuban-Colombian restaurant. – In Short
Once inside, pass the bar with the Spanish-style overhang, through horseshoe-shaped doorways, into rooms with gentle lighting and tables for two or ten. The jukebox offers today's Latin hits. The all-day menu is split into Colombian and Cuban selections. Chicken, pork, beef and seafood entrees are served with rice, beans, sweet or green plantains, cassava or potatoes. Don't leave without a piece of the sweet las tres leches (three-milk cake) or flan de leche.
A corner of Colombia in Philly – Great food, nice environment, good service. Unfortunately, parking in a bit tough, and the neightborhood is a bit scary after hours.
