Kiosco Restaurant

4 blocks from the Courthouse. Tucked away on a quiet stretch just southwest of the square, Kiosco has been serving up its carne-intensive Colombian cuisine to the Marietta faithful since 2004.  The Colombian tamales, which achieve legendary status here, are quite unlike the familiar Mexican variety. As opposed to the small masa-laden tamales we typically encounter here, these guys are large and loaded with yellow rice, peas, shredded pork and chicken all cooked in a banana leaf as opposed to the traditional corn husk.  Another must-have is the chorizo con arepa which pairs the traditional cornmeal pancake with juicy housemade chorizo.  Other faves include the popular half roasted chicken with raspberry sauce and the carne desmechada–sauteed shredded beef served alongside crisp plantains.  All entrees are served with a mild but flavorful lentil soup appetizer.  I know its lunch, but desserts here deserve a real mention with interesting offerings such as passion fruit flan, postre de coco (coconut cobbler), and Brevas en Almibar con Queso–figs served in a natural syrup with soft white cheese.  A fairly quick in and out and just blocks from the courthouse make this an easy lunchtime option.
