La Mulata (Cartagena, Colombia)

La Mulata was recommended to us by a local friend of ours.  It’s located on an unassuming street within the walled city.  La Mulata’s decor is quirky and fun.  The menu is etched on a thin wood board, which I found very clever.  My wife and I ordered the ceviche, shrimp in garlic sauce and the Cartagena style braised beef.  To drink I had a beer and my wife had the coconut limeade.  The ceviche was amazing!  It was made with large chunks of local sea bass tossed with citrus, chilies and red onion.  The ceviche is only lightly cured in the marinade so it is essentially raw.
