Miami New Times' Description

El Cartel Colombian Restaurant and Lounge is the latest downtown eatery targeting numerous residential buildings in the area. But even with a semi-sleek interior that features green lamps, wooden tables, and dark walls, the lounge-feel is lost to a cafeteria-style serving station. Appetizers include empanadas ($1.25), buñuelos ($1.25), and chorizo con arepita ($3). Entrée options include media noche ($3.99), carne de bistec with egg ($5.99), and ham and cheese sandwich ($4.99). The restaurant's specialties are steamed tongue steak ($9.99), oxtail in creole sauce ($9.99), and a popular picada of pork crackling, sausage, blood pie, potatoes, and plantains ($18.99). There are also ten seafood dishes such as breaded shrimp ($10.99) and casuela seafood ($18.99). If you're hungry and looking for homemade Colombian food, this is the place to go.
