I was tempted to order a Colombian breakfast (which the place serves all day) but was lured by the seductive description of a chicken breast sided with boiled yucca and potatoes and smothered in a mildly spiced tomato sauce.
After eating so much food, dessert seemed vaguely excesivo, but Mauricio explained that Aldemar told him he'd made the tres leches cake himself, so we had to taste the wildly rich pastry, heavy with cream, condensed milk and evaporated milk. The menu lists a four-milk version, too, but we were too intimidated to order it. We also shared the very nice flan, dripping with a dark caramel sauce, and a fluffy rice pudding dusted with cinnamon. All of them were fantastic.
Mauricio told me that Rincon Colombiano is his favorite restaurant in Kansas City, along with Piropos, the Argentine steakhouse, and the all-American Cheesecake Factory. Now that I've discovered this attractive little place, I think it's one of my favorites, too. Even if I can't habla Español.
