Bandeja Paisa

When I heard Moliendo Café was opening in Albany I was excited. Once I tried it I was hooked! From the menu to the service, it is excellence. The bandeja paisa is my favorite dish and Moliendo Café makes it as traditional and delicious as it is made in Medallo! Every bite will take you up to heaven and back down, guaranteed. This is a MUST GO RESTAURANT. 🇨🇴🇺🇸

The chicken rice vegetable soup is delicious it tastes just like home, it comes with a side of rice and an avocado, which tastes great with the soup. You can really taste all the flavors together it's very comforting and fills you up.

Bandeja Paisa

Delicious, traditional, "typical" Spanish plate that I always get. Grew up eating a lot of Colombian food with family in New York City, and Moliendo Cafe does such an excellent job of creating authentic dishes!

Pechuga a la Plancha

Simple chicken dish but satisfying and delicious. The menu has a Mexican feel but refreshingly different. The pechuga a la plancha was part of a larger order to feed our big family. They have a wide range of menu items to keep everyone happy.

Empanadas / Corn Patties

These are honestly the best empanadas I have ever had. I love having the chicken or beef filled ones they always hit the spot. The sauce is delicious as well comes with pink sauce or the traditional sauce.

The meal was excellent. Everything was seasoned well. Egg cooked perfectly on top. The chorizo wasn't too greasy nor was it too spicy. Definitely worth going back.

This was one of the best meals I've had in a while.. especially in our area. I lived in PR for a little while so I became obsessed with Camarones al Ajillo and this place knows how to do it!!! XOXOXO

Lunch #1

I've ordered numerous items and never been disappointed. The stewed chicken is so full of flavor and the beans, rice, and plantains are equally delicious. But my favorite is the fried yucca! I order it with a side of the Colombian creole sauce which is phenomenal. Don't forget to try the homemade lemonade ~ so yummy!
