Consider The Sauce Feast No.6: La Morenita
67 Berkshire Rd, Sunshine North. Phone: 9311 2911
From 7pm on Wednesday, May 21.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT. CTS AND LA MORENITA ARE IN DISCUSSIONS ABOUT A REPEAT!
Who doesn’t like hands-on food?
Not we here at CTS HQ, that’s for sure!
And that’s just what we’ll all be doing at CTS Feast No.6.
We know this because La Morenita’s Maria has assured us there’s simply no cutlery to be found in the place.
Maria and her hubby, Marco, are old friends of CTS.
We use their empanadas for out-of-the-freezer light meals and snacks.
We love dropping in for coffee and cake.
We love that this friendly Latin American cafe is right there on Berkshire Road as a warm, tasty contrast to the wall-to-wall panelbeaters and the like.
Most of all, we love their amazing range of sooper-dooper, genuine Latin American sandwiches/burgers, one of which – the fabled churrasco – will be the centrepiece of CTS Feast No.6.
As with the previous Feast, a charge of $20 will apply, with the proceeds being split between CTS and La Morenita.
In this case, though, because of space restrictions, there are only 25 tickets available.
After a feast history that has so far embraced three Indian eateries as well as one each of Vietnamese and Chinese, it’s really cool to be offering CTS readers something different.
Let’s let Maria have the last word: “My aim with this night is to make sure everyone goes home full!”
Cheese, spicy chicken and beef empanadas
Choripan (chorizo in a roll)
Cocktail hallullas (Chilean bread), pebre (spicy chilli sauce)
Traditional ham and cheese sandwiches de miga
Churrasco (burger with beef, tomato, avocado and mayonnaise)
Custard berlin (doughnut)
Milhoja (“1000 layers”) cake (which Marco will slice on the night)
A Jarrito (Mexican soft drink)
