Coco Cubano, Parramatta

Viva la revolucion!

For a hot summer’s day on the corner of Philip & Church Streets in Parramatta is a little slice of Havana, a place you can sit in a big leather chair with a mojito in one hand and a cigar in the other like the boss you are.  Well out of Fidel’s reach, owner Tony Melhem who aptly takes the dictatorial title, “El Presidente”, has big visions for his cafes’ revolutionary inspiration.

A group of bloggers were cordially invited to sample the menu, and I cordially accepted.  So, arriving a little late for the high-noon start, I found a table full of happy (thanks, Sangria) bloggers ready to indulge and explore.

Grilled Chorizo with Warm Olives — $9.9

The Grilled Chorizo with Warmed Olives starts out our feast.  You gotta love chorizo!

Vegetarian Sandwich

This vegetarian sandwich was for our own Miss Piggy.  I couldn’t find it on the menu; you’ll have to watch her blog.

Patatas Bravas — $9.9

The Patatas Bravas are wedge-like spiced chunky chips with a lovely hot tomato sauce/salsa on top.  Mmm!

Vegetarian Nachos — $12.9

The Vegetarian Nachos were oh-so-tasty as well, with lots of toppings!  But I think I would lean more towards the beef nachos than the beans.

Sliders — 2x for $9.9

The Mini Beef Burger Sliders were one of my favourites of the Tapas dishes.  Nicely seasoned beef burgers which were almost like a meatball sat on a toasted sesame bun with grilled cheese and onion jam.  Onion jam!  I loved it.

Chocolate Suze loves Sangria

While I ordered a Corona & Lime, the girls ordered a sampling of the cocktail menu, and Suze occupied herself whilst waiting for the next round of food…

Chocolate Pots with Strawberries and Lady Fingers

As the first of the desserts came out, so did the cameras.  The coverture chocolate at Coco Cubano is delicious!  Here were two pots of milk and dark chocolate, smooth and silken, with stawberries, marshmallows and lady fingers to dip.

Mojito — $13.9

Chocolate Suze

As the mojitos came out, I began to see a pattern.

Chocolate Cinnamon Churros — $13.9

And here are the churros!  I love churros, and I have to say these were very yummy.  They reminded me alot of the kind we get in North America, doused in cinnamon sugar.  Crisp on the outside and chewy-warm on the inside.

Chocolate Pot. See the drizzle!

Revolution Waffle — $13.9

Lastly came the Revolution Waffle: a belgian waffle topped with ice cream, melted chocolate and strawberries!  The breakfast of they serve it at breakfast.

Mojitos — $13.9/each (options: passionfruit, raspberry, strawberry, mango, lychee, coconut or classic)

Daiquiris (Mango & Strawberry) — $14.9/each

    You’re photos are really great Mr Ramen! They made the vego sambo especially for me which was lovely (lovely that they made it that is, but it was also lovely tasting)…I reckon it would be the same price as any of the other sambos. The Vegetarian Nacho’s were for me too…I don’t think the table were a fan of the beans either. LOLz at Suze with that straw…

    I work just up the road from there, and I brought Tanja along for dinner, but our choices were not the most harmonious: we OD’d on salty goodness! Luckily there were monitors to cool our burning palates.
