Sonido! South American Cafe August 19, 2010Posted by Sarah in Arepas, beef, bread, dining out, food, holiday, Meet Me At Mikes, Melbourne, Sonido! South American Cafe.
I had been on the look out for places to eat and drink while we were in Melbourne when I came across this blog post by Pip from Meet Me At Mikes. Turns out, this sweet little cafe is just around the corner from her store, so it worked in well with our shopping plans. The first day we just dropped by for a coffee, and the second day we stayed and had the most delicious lunch. Highly recommended if you’re in the Fitzroy area.
Josephine had the Ropa Vieja (Old Clothes beef) – $11.50
A lovely slow cooked beef dish, served on a crispy arepa. The menu says that this is an old Cuban recipe.
This was really delicious, especially with the guacamole and salsa that was provided to serve with it.
I ordered the Arepa con Huevo – $9.50
A delicious combination of soft scrambled free range eggs, with spring onions and tomatoes. Served on a crispy Arepa.
The combination of crispy hot arepa, and soft scrambled eggs was just wonderful. I would be eating this all the time if I lived in Fitzroy.
