Têt Taberna Vietnamita, now on Calle 85
You are probably already familiar with Quinta Camacho’s Têt, which now offers diners a new location in which to sample your favorite maki, with grated shrimp, kanikama and avocado.
Head to Calle 85 with Carrera 16A to enjoy the casual, unpretentious dining concept, where good service and great cuisine are the order of the day, with the flavors of Vietnam and Asia shining through.
As well as the pink salmon dumplings, shrimp har gao, spicy vegetable gyozas, steamed coconut milk baos and famed curry – with personalized spiciness level – you can also sample a delicious sushi menu from Canoa (a restaurant from the same group). Our top recommendations are the ceviche sushi and the specialty that’s on everyone’s lips: the Misoyaki mussels.
So there you have it: not only do you have the best Vietnamese offering in Bogotá located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods, you can also find the best sushi in the same spot.

The Azahar cafés, set in the Parque de la 93 and San Felipe, have been surprising us for years with their unique way of adapting to a particular area.
Now it’s the turn of the historic La Candelaria neighborhood, home to the latest café, set in an old colonial house, bursting with a colorful atmosphere and hiding within it an interior lit patio, surrounded by lush vegetation. The décor and design was inspired by popular Antioquia culture, with wood and jute finishes, among other natural materials.
As coffee is the key ingredient, you will always find at least three unique coffees on the menu, from single-producer micro-batches to regional blends. You can also acquire the coffee beans (340 gram bags) to take home or give to family and friends.
Just as in Azahar’s other two cafés, here you can enjoy all-day breakfasts (highlights include the avocado toast, paisa crumble, sweet corn arepa and the acai bowl). Stop by for lunch to enjoy the hamburger, pork loin, quinoa, lentil and chicken salads, and a number of vegetarian options.
Café Azahar serves delicious coffee of the finest quality, with the added bonus that, with every cup you buy, you are supporting the economic sustainability of the coffee growers they work with.
