EatClub’s newest partner is a vibrant restaurant with all the Latin favourites, frills and frappes!
When El Gordo Latin Bites opened in Bondi, the locals knew they had something very special in their suburb. Inspired by Latin American vibrancy and flair, this hot spot provides everything you miss from the Latin world: empanadas, arepas and plenty of grilled carne.Think chimichurri mayo-smothered small plates of empanadas and arepas filled with things like pulled pork and smoked brisket. There are tacos and sliders too. For something larger, opt for the skewers, the Prawn and Crab Meat Tostada or the El Gordo Chuzopan: skewers in a hotdog bun with sauce and fries.
Despite the carne-centric menu, there are plenty of vegetarian options: empanadas with chickpeas and pico de gallo salsa or cheese and guava. Arepas also come stuffed with sweet plantains, black beans, cheese & guacamole.Weekends provide the brunch goods: Huevos Rancheros, Huevos Pericos (scrambled eggs with fresh tomato and arepa croquettes) and plenty of guacamole plonked on the side.
As for drinks, one can’t look past the Coconut Lemonade Frappe or the Aguapanela – a drink capable of tricking you into thinking you’re on a South American holiday. This restaurant is a BYO restaurant. Bring along a Malbec which always works wonders with Latin American dishes.
