Cositas Ricas is essentially a big Colombian diner, and it’s ideal for when you need to eat with a bunch of people who all want different things. The menu is huge, and you can get everything from a whole fish to some chicken fingers - but we typically eat steak of some kind with rice and beans or yuca. There are also plenty of TVs where you can watch soccer while you eat, and a lot of neon lights that will subconsciously improve your mood.
