Orleans in Parke Lleras

If you happen to be in Medellin on a Wednesday and want a really good lunch, you should plan to go to Orleans in Parke Lleras for their Wednesday Mexican lunch special.  Most of the people working in Lleras businesses, banks, shops, etc. will be there and the eye candy is tantamount to a sweet dessert.

It is one of the most popular Wednesday lunch spots in Parke Lleras so go early because it fills quickly.

The meal starts out with a Mexican soup, nicely flavored but not spicy (Paisas do not usually eat spicy food), followed by a mexican salad, and an array of meat, cheese, sour cream, guacamole and soft flour tortillas for making your own tortillas. Your table will quickly fill with small dishes of various ingredients.

Total cost for the meal is about $5.00 USD including drink.  Tip is extra.

Just be careful because you may not want dinner and an afternoon siesta is not out of the question.
