Another restaurant review.

My brother took me out for lunch today (it being my birthday and all). We had intended to go round the corner to the Waterside for a Parma & Chips but the place was packed. What were we thinking at 1:00PM on a Friday. I mean, really.

So we wandered futher down Flinders St and stumbled on Melbourne’s “#1st Colombian Restaurant”, the El Dorado.

Don’t be fooled if it looks empty. This was good stuff. Colombian cooking is between Spanish and Mexican and I thoroughly enjoyed the Banjas Paisa plate which had some fried pork, chorizo, plantain, rice black beans and some sort of tortilla thing with a fried egg. All for $13.50 and there was more than I could eat. Give it a try. I doubt you will be dissappointed.

    Happy Birthday from me too! Also, which part of Flinders St is that restaurant in? It sounds great.

    It’s very close to the Spencer St corner.

    It deserves to have some success. Give it a try.
