Hello everyone. I’m @olivertomolife and I’ve studied abroad in Sydney!
Did you know that there is a Colombian restaurant in Sydney?
I had never eaten Colombian food before I came to Australia, but I was impressed by how delicious it was!
I went to a particularly popular restaurant among many, and I will tell you about it.
This time, I’m going to introduce you to some Colombian food that I’d recommend to anyone who isn’t familiar with it!
I studied abroad in Sydney for a year starting in 2018. Now I am writing a blog about that experience.
By reading this post, you’ll get to know the best Colombian food in Sydney!
What is Colombian food?
Colombian cuisine generally uses rice, corn, potatoes and beans as its main ingredients, and the ingredients used vary from region to region.
Typical dishes include arepa, a bread-like dish made from corn dough, and ajiaco, a chicken and potato soup.
One of the characteristics of this cuisine is that it uses a lot of grains in its dishes and many of its dishes are influenced by Spain.
What is La Herradura Coffee Stable?
La Herradura Coffee Stable is a Colombian restaurant located near Sydney’s Central Station.
It is a popular place for many citizens to enjoy typical Colombian cuisine.
It is a little far from the center of Sydney, but I think it is within walking distance.
It is located at the end of Sydney University of Technology, so if it is too far, you can take the bus.
Get off at the Broadway at Buckland St bus stop and walk down Grafton Ln to the store.
Don’t worry, if you have a smart phone, you can get there no problem!
Atmosphere of the store
The store looks and feels like a café in town.
It had the atmosphere of a place frequented by Colombian people.
The shopkeepers are very friendly and will tell you about their country.
Inside the store, there are displays of things related to Colombia, very interesting!
The store also sells Colombian goods, so if there’s something you’re interested in, go ahead and buy it!
A Colombian friend of mine recommended feijoada to me!
He said it’s a common food in his city.
There are also arepa and ajiaco.
How to order and what to look out for
Place your order with the waitress.
The bill is paid later.
Taste the food
The food we ordered has arrived!
Avocado, rice, and a large feijoada came.
The soup seemed to be quite large.
This dish is similar to the Brazilian feijoada.
Got to try the dish right away, and it’s a very thick soup with stewed pork and beef!
The first half of the meal is generous, but by the second half, you will be quite full.
It is a very calorie-dense dish, so be careful if you are on a diet lol.
It was one of those dishes where you can enjoy the deep flavors of beans and meat with rice and avocado!
- Colombia’s popular dish can be tasted!
- Feijoada is full of volume.
- Friendly and fun store!
I’ve introduced La Herradura Coffee Stable!
If you live in Sydney, I highly recommend you go there.
I’ll be posting more information about Australia in the future, so stay tuned.
Thank you for reading to the end!
