Arabic Flavor in Medellin: Restaurant Tabun
While other international restaurants in Medellín often bow down to a diluted version of authentic cuisine, El Tabun refuses to pander to Paisa’s love of bland food.
With cloth ceilings, hypnotic Arabic music and belly dancing complete with jingly jewelry, El Tabun’s sensual approach slowly hypnotises you into a different world, or at least a different city.
The freshly baked bread with houmous and 12 side dishes consisting of various dips, salads and roasted vegetables is a great opener.
El Tabun offers a delivery service, but with so much emphasis on atmosphere, you would be reckless to stay at home.
