I walked by this hamburger cart in Bogotá the other day and it got me thinking about how creative people can be here in Colombia. This small space only just fits one woman, and here she sells hamburgers for $1,000COL pesos or about 50 cents and hot dog combos for $1,500COL pesos or 75 cents.

If you have $2 in your pocket in Bogotá you can buy yourself breakfast, lunch or dinner with street food in Bogotá. Ok, it’s not going to be the most flash meal you’ve ever had, you know that, but here are some of the foods available on the streets of Bogotá and all for under $2.

  1. Hamburgers
  2. Hot dogs
  3. Fried ribs
  4. Arepas
  5. Pizza
  6. Fruit salads
  7. Fried potato chips
  8. Chorizo on a stick
  9. Fruit juices
  10. Buñuelos
  11. Sandwiches
  12. Coffee
  13. Cereal with yogurt
  14. Meat and chips
  15. Stuffed potatoes
  16. Corn
  17. Pelanga
  18. Raspao or snow cones
  19.  Cholado
  20. Empanadas

I am sure I have missed so, so many street food options. What have you tried?
