Bienvenidos! That’s what you read when you enter Café Cortado, and likely, that’s how you’ll feel. Meaning “welcome”, it’s the secret ingredient to the success of Ivan Paz’s Latin American café in Sydney.
This lively Marrickville local serves up Peruvian soft drinks and fruit juices, empanadas, cassava chips and – drumroll please – alpaca burgers. Yep, you read that right. Doesn’t taste like chicken, but somewhere between lamb and veal. Steak sangas are available for the less adventurous.
