At the end of three long days of negotiations in Medellin our hosts took us to this wonderful restaurant tucked into an old residential neighborhood in El Poblado. It's up a steep hill on a cul de sac that is this portion of Carrera 35 (be careful because Carrera 35 also runs south of here but isn't connected to this piece.) It's housed in an old Medellin villa; the furnishings are spare but it's airy and oh-so pleasant. The clientele dresses smartly though not formally. The atmosphere is very laid back and the music set the mood nicely.
The food is Peruvian and is excellent. Our large group had a variety of ceviche, octopus, prawns and then I had a main dish of Peruvian rice with fish cubes, Roquefort cheese, shrimp and mushrooms. We also enjoyed the locally-made 8-year-old Ron Medellin (Medellin Rum.) I don't usually drink rum but this was light, subtle and complemented the food marvelously.
I will definitely head back here when I'm in Medellin. I spent time in Lima and Northern Peru on business last year where the cuisine is among the world's finest. Piqueo in Medellin does it justice.
