Sobrebarriga: slow-cooked beef flanks, marinated in beer, garlic, red peppers and spices, served with rice, steamed cassava, hogao sauce and guacamole.
After a swim at Maribyrnong Aquatic Centre, refuel with Colombian fare at El Toucan café on Aquatic Drive. From coffee to healthy Latin American dishes, El Toucan delivers an authentic menu from breakfast to dinner as guests watch swimmers doing laps; with an aim of putting Colombian food on the Australian map, expect offerings such as huevos pericos – free-range scrambled eggs, diced tomato and onion sofrito, arepa and avocado. Those dining later may start with entrees of beef empanadas, cassava chips, criolla potatoes, pork bites and chipotle mayo; before mains like char-grilled butterflied Porterhouse steak, salted potato, guacamole, salad and chimichurri. For a dessert to remember, try sweet plantain banana, filled with cheese and guava paste; or Colombian rice pudding.
