El Corral. An up-scale hamburger restaurant in Colombia.
You can buy hamburgers on the street starting at 2.500 COP, but who knows what the meat is made of. AND you’re likely to get a little hard-boiled egg and a zillion different sauces between the bun.
Joel is usually satisfied and even pleased with the hamburgers that I make at home. However, one thing that he misses from the States is seasoned curly fries. A few restaurants in Bogota are said to offer them on the menu. I wasn’t eager to head to the Hard Rock Cafe, so we stopped at El Corral instead.
The menu is in Spanish, but you can get an idea from the pictures.
Warning: you might not want to order a combo. Joel and I ordered separate combos and had a hard time finishing them.
The prices aren’t cheap (more than 18.000 COP each combo). The atmosphere isn’t that great (Plastic chairs. No comfy booths. Charicatures of “famous” people on the walls.). However, the hamburger will be more USA American than most other places, and…they’ve got curly fries and onion rings.
