Voraz Restaurante is a steakhouse located in Laureles in Medellín. It’s a popular steakhouse with a nice ambience and some good steaks and desserts.
In the United States, we’d call Voraz a steakhouse, but here in Colombia and South America it’s known as a parilla, a restaurant where grilled meats are served.
A reader of Medellin Guru highly recommended Voraz and I went recently to try out this steakhouse. I went with another reader of the Medellin Guru site and we found that this steakhouse has very good steaks.
