We enjoyed a delicious lunch of pork ramen, beef noodles, a lemonade, and lychee iced tea - all really fresh and flavorful. We could have used with some extra condiments like vinegar or spicy chili paste that you would normally find in Asian restaurants, but otherwise, it was a great meal. Paid 80000 COP including tax and tip.

Service was quick and staff was friendly. Would definitely come back to try their sandwich and rice bowls.

I took my chinese girlfriend here several times. She being knowledgeable about asian cuisine has deemed this place worthy. The niu rou mian is especially delicious.

Ok, it's Medellin, so your options for any edible food from the great culinary continent of Asia is limited. That said, I've been to Formosa 2x now and had 2 decidedly tasty meals. The beef ramen soup is the ticket here. Tasted a companion's pork ramen and it wasn't nearly as good. The noodles were the real deal, the broth rich, thin sliced beef was tender, and the whole bowl is topped off with fresh herbs, sprouts and greens. Again, this is Medellin, not the Ginza, so if your expectations are reasonable, you won't be disappointed. We didn't order any of the plates, but eyeballed a few on other tables. They basically looked like the bowls of ramen, without the broth. The other winner is the pork belly sandwich. The meat is slightly sweet from being grilled with sugar, which sounds weird, but when it caramelizes, compliments the pork nicely. Served with lettuce and tomato and mayo on a soft roll. Add a little hot sauce and you're off to the races. The place itself is cute and comfortable and the service is competent. I'll be back.

I try to come here at least once a month to take care of my ramen craving. The soup is perfect, and I've tried other things which were good too. The staff is awesome and I love the attention to detail. Keep it up!

Went here for dinner and got spicy rice sushi triangles for starters and they were delicious. We actually went back again for them the next day as a snack. For mains we ordered pho, I love pho and this one was good not amazing but still very enjoyable
The staff were very friendly and the prices were reasonable for the area
