Authentic Colombian food in the heart of Oklahoma City is one of our city’s best-kept culinary secrets.
El Fogon de Edgar is located in an old house, but don’t let the exterior fool you; the food is stellar.
Start with empanadas—Colombian style means they’re made with cornmeal instead of flour—and ask for plenty of aji, a spicy, green salsa made from aji peppers. The beef dishes are slow-cooked, so whether you opt for sobrebarriga or carne asada, you’re going to get meat you can cut easily with a fork. There are plenty of vegetarian options on the menu, as well as more classic fare like arroz con pollo.
