    Generalist Latin restaurants in Sydney

    There are lots of Latin restaurants in Sydney which take an eclectic, pick and mix approach to the continent's culinary traditions. For example, places like Exotik in King Street, Newtown, offers a range of perennial classics such as stuffed aubergine, flank steak and rice and pabellon criollo (shredded beef with rice and black beans). In the meantime, Jimmy Blanco on Foveaux Street in Surry Hills pioneers a crowd-pleasing Colombian-Australian fusion menu of chicken wings, burgers, salads and slow-cooked BBQ's, dished up with house mayo steeped in jalapeno and chipotle chillies.

    Latin restaurants in Sydney with a Brazilian theme

    Also very popular in Sydney are Latin restaurants specialising in Brazilian cooking. At Bondi Rumba on Bondi Beach's Glenayr Avenue, for example, you can get the party started with popular Brazilian street eats such as totopos (corn chips) or deep-fried cheese balls before moving onto sharing plates of fajitas, tacos and empanadas. Alternatively, Char and Co on Knox Street, Double Bay, channels traditional gaucho cuisine with an array of burgers, prime cuts, marinades and salsas. These places often host live music and entertainment too, and you can always wash down your food with a South American beer or an organic mai tai.

    Enjoying Peruvian dishes in Sydney's Latin restaurants

    Peruvian cooking is another favourite among Sydney's Latin restaurants. La Cocina Peruana in Randwick and Inca's in Darlinghurst are just two of the well-reviewed eateries introducing customers to this up and coming cuisine. Try authentic regional dishes like seafood quinotto (a kind of risotto made with quinoa), locro (pumpkin stew), carapulcra (pork stew with mint and potatoes), chickpea salad and barbecued ox heart. Bright surroundings with colourful textiles add to the feeling of being spirited away to the Andes.
