A hidden gem nestled between Cuba Street and Courtenay Place, El Barrio embodies the passion, food and culture of Latin America.
Located upstairs from Eva Pub, you've got to be in the know when it comes to this eatery; welcome to the club. If you're struggling to find it, the catchy live music will be a dead giveaway. Inside it's snug and secluded... call it a lively Latino bubble if you will. And yes... the staff speak fluent Spanish and Portuguese!
In true Latino style, the food is sumptuous, theatrical and fun. If you want a bit of this and that, opt for their tapas plates which include Calamar Frito, the most delicious Chicharron and for sure the best Guacamole in town. And their tacos bridge the gap between sharing plates and individual mains. Take your pick between Nopales (cactus), Pollo (grilled chicken), Pork Adobo, Beef barbacoa or Smokey Prawns. Spice them up with your choice of sauce.
If you want a plate to yourself, we don't blame you. With offerings like Asada steak, Arepas, Ropa Vieja, or Quinoa Salad, Latin America awaits you with open arms, jazzy cocktails and a pair of salsa shoes (should you wish to take to the tiles later on...)
