Aracataca was born by a passion for food, travel and exploration shared by chef Raluca Cojocariu and professional traveler David Rivas. Their approach combines traditional Colombian street foods like arepas, empanadas and patacones, with global flavours in an elegant, cosmopolitan fusion. Join them at The Dep for an innovative 5-course tasting menu featuring a selection of their signature dishes.
