Is there a worse place to eat Mexican food in Columbia than El Jimador?
(note: El Jimador is off of Clark Lane, over by Home Depot)
Three times I have given the place a shot and each time has been worse than the last.
Today I had an unrecognizable mass they called a pork tamale, covered for some reason with clumps of ground hamburger and a few kidney beans. Neither meat tasted, well, like anything at all. The “sauce” on top resembled most closely their Heinz kethup-style salsa and the novelty of eating cornmeal that tasted like granulated cardboard quickly abated as well. So I moved on to the crunchy taco, filled with the same hamburger from the tamale. No thanks. Alongside the taco was a “guacamole salad,” which consisted of shredded iceburg lettuce and a giant blob of pureed, lifeless avocado. The least offensive item was the chili relleno, which while lacking any spice whatsoever was least distinguishable from the mess of brown-grey refried beans in which it swam.
A disaster…consider yourself warned. Other nominations for worst Mexican food in Columbia?
