Um, I have a new favorite restaurant in Park Slope. It’s called Bogota Latin Bistro & Mojito Restaurant and my question to you is why am I not there right now?

My friend Mara introduced me to this place on Saturday night and it was perfect for splitting a bunch of small plates/appetizers. We had Elote Asado: grilled corn, chipotle mayo, queso fresco and lime juice. Mara told me about a guy¬† she knows who just doesn’t like cheese. At all. And I must tell you, my friends, that that is a DEALBREAKER. Haha.

And the other appetizer that I am now obsessed with is the Papa Criolla: Colombian bite-sized potatoes with salsa rosada, which was like a dipping sauce (something about Latin 1,000 island dressing?)

Yay for blurry pictures! The potatoes were good and the sauce made them even better. It reminded me a lot of the sauces you can get with your french fries at Pommes Frites. Geeze, I haven’t made it there in ages. Put that on my list of to-dos, please.

We also had rice and beans and some gauc and Mara had a Caipirinha or two and I started with a Strawberry Mojito for reasons I do not know, as I do like strawberries but neither mint nor lime. Opps. It just sounded nice, I guess. But then I pretended it was summer and ordered a Strawberry Colada and it made everything better.

Excellent choices, all around.

I like this place, lots, and I can’t wait to go there again. The ambiance is really fun.

I’m going to blame my drinks for the blurriness of all of these pictures. Notice how my first picture was completely fine but it just goes downhill after that. After Bogota, we went to my new favorite bar in Park Slope: Union Hall, which everybody and their brother already goes to but it was the first time for me. It’s huge and it looks like a library inside and there’s bocce ball and bands play downstairs. We met up with some people before going to Bar 4 and crammed seven of us in one car to get there, which I remembered yesterday while sitting in my kitchen. Can it be Saturday again, please? Sometimes it is just too much fun. :)
