Hearty Dining: Abuelo Café Review

Hearty Dining: Abuelo Café Review

Elizabeth Finney heads to the Abuelo Café to sample this blend of Australian and South American cuisine

The cosy café feels more like the dining room of an art-loving family than a restaurant. Vast river scenes cover feature walls, the water appearing to glimmer in the soft candlelight. I sit at a small table to one side of the centrepiece wooden coffee bar, enjoying the quiet hubbub emanating from the group at the long dining table that stretches the length of the room.

My guest and I start with a couple of sharing plates, accompanied by a bottle of Argentinian Pablo y Walter Malbec, which adds a vibrant blend of velvety zing to the whole meal. First, we tuck into the pulled lamb tostadas with chipotle mayonnaise, pickled onion and radish, which ooze flavour and leave behind a satisfying deep heat. This cools off when we sample Burrata cheese with colourful roasted beetroot, honey, walnuts and charcoal salt. It’s so delightfully creamy and sweet it could almost be a dessert.
