Rondón or Rundown -- Not to Miss Cuisine

One of the classic dishes of the Islands (San Andrés, Santa Catalina and Providencia) is Rundown or Rondón.

Using coconut milk as the broth base, you add snail, pig tail, and fish (sometimes shrimp, crab or lobster are added) as the meat. You also add to the meat green plantains, yuca, breadfruit, yams, dumplings and spices.

It is usually cooked outside and most often on the beach in a large pot over an open fire. This unique and VERY typcial dish is well worth a whirl if you get a chance to visit San Andrés while in Colombia
