Barroco Grill Restaurant Review

: Barroco Grill’s ambience is more food truck than fine dining, but the cooking renders the uncomfortable chairs and wobbly tables completely irrelevant. An open kitchen lets patrons view cooks creating a well-crafted menu of authentic Colombian fare. Start with the cheesy corn made with chicken, bacon and molten mozzarella, served in a crock alongside deep-fried arepa fingers (a corn cake made from precooked corn flour) for dipping fondue-style. For a main course, arepas can be filled with chicken, steak or vegetables and eaten like a sandwich. You can customize them to your heart's content and top them with house sauces. The Barroco burger, with garlic and chimichurri sauces, bacon and mozzarella, is also an option. Barroco Grill is BYOB friendly.
