Yudy Bakery and Restaurant, Offers a Taste of Colombia in Hallandale Beach

This past World Cup was a revelation of sorts. Without getting into the politicking of Brazil spending millions of dollars in order to look good on international TV while half of their favelas starve daily, there were some really good fútbol moments on the pitch. One of the biggest showings, regardless of how their campaign ended, was the Colombian squad who made it through to the quarter finals and, let's be honest, that game belonged to them.

Twenty-three-year-old former AS Monaco and current Real Madrid attacking midfielder, James Rodríguez was the most exciting player to watch this past cup. Apologies to my German and Argentine friends, this man was so good that ever since they bowed out from the action, this lowly scribe has been craving nothing but arequipe and salty sobrebarriga. Thankfully, these are not cravings that will go unfulfilled while cruising on the Hallandale Beach Boulevard corridor.

Yudy Bakery and Colombian Restaurant on the 300 block of the boulevard's got you covered on every end, from the sweet to the savory, served with that smiling drawl only your best parceros will offer. Will it be enough to hold you over until the next Cup? Probably not, but it is good to know that these nostalgic options are available without breaking your wallet.
