If authentic Latin foods tempt your palate, then you've got to check out Colombian Street Food in the heart of the Junction Triangle.

This South American eatery features traditional homemade Colombian fare prepared by owner Cookie Martinez. The place has a home-like vibe, and the decor is reminiscent of a traditional Colombian kitchen, which will make you feel as though you've stepped outside Canadian borders, if only for a brief moment.

A number of conventional South American items can be nibbled on at Colombian Street Food, including empanadas and stuffed arepas. Empanadas are pastry turnovers filled with ground or chopped meat, veggies, or fruit. They're usually baked or fried, but Cookie takes the texture of her empanadas a step further with an extra crispy exterior that will have you drooling at the sight and smell. Cookie offers 6 stuffing options, including vegan-friendly options.

You'll also be delighted with other options, including cassava fries with guacamole, deep-fried plantains, pork belly, and American sodas including Postobon, a fizzy apple drink. 

But if you're looking for something a little out of the box, Cookie also serves chocolate-drenched edible crickets.

Not only can you visit Colombian Street Food for a grab-and-go treat or to take your time enjoying your meal at one of the few tables in the joint, but you can also have your next event catered by Cookie's growing business.

Cookie got into the restaurant business in 2012 and started her journey by focusing solely on baked goods. Her love of baking cookies earned her nickname, "Cookie." Since then, Cookie started dabbling in Colombian food, tapping into her Colombian heritage after being born and raised in the South American nation. She began serving the local community by hosting pop-up kiosks and drop-in dinners.
