There's a focus on the food of Colombia at this charming little Latin American bistro on Trafalgar Road. There's a downstairs wine bar, too - for drinks, live music and some salsa, on occasion.
The food menu starts with breakfasts ranging from a full English, bowls of porridge and granola with Greek yoghurt to a 'Latin special' of chorizo, bean rice, fried egg, arepa and avocado, Spanish omelettes and a selection of bunelos y pandebonos - traditional Colombian pastries made from corn maise and salted with cheese.
Authentic Latin options pepper the lunch and dinner menu, with empanadas, boiled cassava, fried plantain, Latin grills of beef, pork, chicken and chorizo, and bandeja paisa - a popular Colombian dish of beans with white rice, beef, chorizo, fried pork belly, plantain, egg and avocado.
Drinks include a selection of Latin American beers, house cocktails and aguardiente - a spirit also known as Colombian fire water.
