Street Food in Colombia: ‘Obleas’

Obleas are a very common, (sweet) street food in Colombia.

I tried it at Plaza Bolivar and i wish i had space for another one!

Think of these as ‘sweet popadum sandwiches’ which could have stuffings of mainly cheese, dulce de leche (condensed milk), tropical fruit pulps and sweetened, shredded coconut – the variations are only limited by the seller’s imagination.

Colombians are SUPER hygienic, so even the street food is served to you wrapped in a piece of aluminium foil or plastic (or paper napkins at least).

Leading an experimental life as a digital nomad, I started traveling in 2007 while choosing to shuttle between Goa and Mumbai as 'home'. An epic life-changing trip to South America an year later gave birth to this blog, Exotic Gringo.
