The arepas were beautiful. Fluffy and moist on the inside and
perfectly crisp on the outside, they had a lovely grittiness from the
ground corn. The egg whites were delicate and the yolk oozed out of
the centre - perfect. The beans, pork belly and chorizo were delicious and worked beautifully together.
milawa chook & corn quesadilla
Described deceptively simply on the menu, this dish arrived with a
vibrant quinoa and chickpea salad beside the wonderfully seasoned
(including an ample dose of chilli!) chicken quesadilla. A very
baja med bbq vegetable salad w. heirloom tomatoes, bbq vegetables,
oregano, olives, cojita cheese lime & evoo dressing served w. grilled
The term "Baja Med" refers to the fusion of Mexican, Mediterranean,
and Asian flavours and accurately sums up this salad. It was fresh,
interesting and bursting with flavour.
A sophisticated take on the spinach and cheese quesa, this was
wonderful. The deliciously grilled tortilla was a filled with a
flavour explosion of wild mushrooms, spinach and a crema made from
what has become one of our favourite ingredients, huitlachoche
café de olla
We couldn't go pass the café de olla which is a traditional Mexican
coffee. As expected, the coffee was sweet with a beautiful aromatic
flavour courtesy of cinnamon and piloncillo - perfect for this winter
And even though it was just brunch, there was no way we were leaving
prickly pear, organic banana and salted caramel ice cream (also available to go)
dulce de leche scrolls
Whilst brunch venues in Melbourne are all the rage, most are serving the same
tried and true dishes. For those seeking more interesting brunch
options, ASC provides a compelling alternative.
