Review at Bebida Bar and Cafe
It’s rather hard to pinpoint the inspirations or origins of the food offered here. It seemed to be a mish mash of many cuisines such as Japanese,Spanish and Australian. On researching the meaning of Bebida, it means “drink” in spanish. That explains the totally relaxed atmosphere which is essential for a good night’s of drinking fun.
Hearing the crunch on the outside and savouring the juicyness inside, this tapas is a winner in my sight. The sweetness of the caramel vinegar was the icing of this wonderful dish.
Tiny potato chunks tossed in salsa was something that seemed ordinary. Its sweetness is only coming from the mild salsa sauce and not the potatoes, which was a slight disappointment.
Using a bamboo skewer to keep the towering tower steady, the Gourmet Beef Burger looked like a mini sub overflowing with veggies. Within the walls of crispy toasted bread and the forestrys, the mild beef patty and its slightly runny egg sidekick battled to keep me satisfied.
I couldn’t go past the menu without ordering the Espresso Martini. It combines my two great loves – coffee and vodka. I was a happy camper after downing this drink.
Bebida Bar & Cafe is definitely a place to chill out in the night. With a DJ mixing chill out music and a delightful discoball nearby, I can’t help but feel the relaxed vibe that Fitzroy is really good for. As for the food, I generally loved the tapas although I was slightly disappointed to find out that tuna wasabi mayonnaise was the thing to try there (which I didn’t order). Great food and a nice chillaxed environment are the 2 ingredients that may keep me coming there.
