Almojábana, pan de bono, pan de yuca

Pan de yuca from La Esquina del Pan de Bono in Cartagena, Colombia.

What: Colombia’s savory baked breads are absolute heaven when they’re fresh and hot. These three share some or all of the same basic ingredients—cassava starch/yucca flour, eggs, corn flour or cornmeal, salty white cheese. Pan de yuca is usually lighter in color than the others and either round or horseshoe-shaped; airy pan de bono and almojábana are bagel-shaped (with holes in the middle) or round balls, depending on what part of the country you are in. All three breads have rich flavor imparted by cheese (almojábana) or starchy yucca and cheese (pan de yuca, pan de bono); they’re often gooey inside when hot. Just try to pass by a bakery when you smell these babies coming out of the oven!

Where: Any bakery. (Our pic is from Cartagena’s La Esquina del Pan de Bono, where the transcendent namesake bread came straight out of the oven: Calle de San Agustin Chiquita & Calle del Porvenir, map.)

Good to know: These breads are gluten-free, for those with dietary restrictions.
