Thaico, Parque Lleras's Thai restaurant, is the best deal in Medellin. Why, you ask? Because from 12 to 7pm, the entire menu, with just a couple of exceptions, is half price. Add to that a three for one cocktail special and a two for one beer special all day long, and you have a serious good deal.

Don't believe the mountain of reviews on TripAdvisor trashing this place. I hate to say it, but if you are traveling in South America expecting Thai food (or any other national cuisine) that you'd find in the United States, Europe, or Thailand, you are bound to be disappointed.

It's true: the food is not superbly authentically Thai, and it's not five-star dining. But it is a wide-ranging menu, with reasonably good food, at a superb price, especially if you're eating before 7pm. Located right next to the ritzy Charlee Lifestyle Hotel, it's a wonder that the place isn't packed all day long.

The menu offers something for everyone: chicken, beef, pork, seafood, vegetarian dishes, and tasty appetizers.
