The cultural diversity is evident in the variety of ingredients and cooking methods. The Bandeja Paisa is served on a tray due to its large size and is the signature dish of Medellin and Antioquia. It consists of beans, rice, pork chorizo, delicious bacon, ground meat, blood sausage, fried egg, ripe plantain, avocado, and the famous arepa paisa.

The arepa paisa is a mouth-watering tortilla made of corn flour that can be enjoyed with cheese, butter, condensed milk, or other toppings. It is commonly eaten for breakfast or as a side dish with meals such as Bandeja Paisa.

Lastly, you can try the Mazamorra Antioqueña, a delectable drink made from cooked white corn served with milk and panela. It is perfect as a dessert or snack, accompanied by a guava candy or a milk caramel known as a panelita.
