MELBOURNE | Club Colombia is a cafe and restaurant on Queen Street that puts a spotlight on the food of Colombia. Ever since visiting Colombia last year I’ve had a craving for Colombian food, and thankfully there have been a few Colombian restaurants opening around town this past year.

The space does well at recreating that atmosphere of a Colombian cafe, with simple wooden tables and colourful seats. The richness of colour is something that’s everywhere in Colombia, and the bright painted walls, artwork, and tiles at Club Colombia all combine for an authentic atmosphere. Staff are Colombian, and Colombian music plays through the speakers.

The menu features an assortment of traditional dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There are small dishes like arepas, empanadas, and pastries, as well as larger plates. The emapanads, proper Colombian style which is different than the Argentinean style you might be used to, are highly recommended.

For something distinctly Colombian, try the bandeja paisa, historically a worker’s breakfast of beans, pork belly, chorizo, minced beef, a fried egg, rice, avocado, ripe plantain, and grilled arepa. Another great option is the Picada Club Colombia. It’s a plate with a ‘bit of everything. Chorizo, arepa, chicharron (pork belly), morcilla (Colombian black pudding), fried yucca (cassava sticks), creole potato (yellow potato), and patacon (fried green plantain). It’s served with aji (Colombian chilli sauce) & Coastal Serum (Colombian sour cream).

For dessert, it’s hard to go past the Colombian Abela. Two crispy cookies sandwiched with arequipe (Colombian milk caramel), mixed berry sauce, whipped cream and mozzarella cheese.

For drinks there’s coffee and juices, including a tangy lulo juice which, like the food, transported us back to Colombia. There’s a small wine and beer list too, and if you want to wash things down like a true Colombian, you can get a shot of Aguardiente.
