Oblea

A street cart with jars of toppings for fresh obleas on the street in Bogota.

Obleas are very thin, round brown wafers—almost like a flattened waffle cone, but lighter—that are spread with sweet arequipe (Colombia’s caramel) on top or between two wafers to create a delicious dessert-sandwich. Some vendors sell it with tons of additional toppings, like grated cheese, marmalade, or colored sprinkles, but we think traditional plain (with arequipe, that is) is best.

These are very popular on the streets of Colombia as well as Mexico, Venezuela, and El Salvador. There's a particularly famous oblea factory in Santander.

Where: On the street just about everywhere (look for the stacks of wafers and tubs of arequipe). You can't miss them!
