19 May Sonido!, Fitzroy
I came pretty early in the day so there weren’t many dine-in customers, though there were a lot of people coming in for takeaway coffee.
I ordered a Ropa Vieja arepa, which was “Old Clothes” beef served with guacamole and picadillo. The beef wasn’t melt-in-your-mouth tender, but it was still soft, moist and very flavoursome. The arepa was crispy; I enjoyed the texture and also that there was enough thickness to not be overcome with meat. Of all the sauces available on the table the one I liked best was the El Yucateco Kutbil-Ik. I haven’t seen Amazon sauce before – it wasn’t bad, but I found it the vinegar to be too strong for the beef.
Overall, Sonido! is a great, intimate little place that offers tasty and satisfying food. It’s worth checking out if you’re in the area!
