Bandeja Paisa at Oiga, Mire, Vea

This is a Colombian restaurant whose name is an expression to get attention (loosely translated: “listen, look, see”). This dish is one of the eye-catchers here: a grilled steak topped with a fried egg, rice and red beans, chicarron (pork rind), chorizo and fried ripe plantain. And it’s big enough for two. $14.50, 2580 S. Decatur Blvd., 221-4359.
