I am ashamed to say that I have worked in Brickell for almost two years and pass La Moon everyday on my way in, and now is when I have finally tried it. But at least I made it, right? And, boy am I glad I did. This place is literally the bomb.
I went with a group of friends, which ended up being a great excuse to try a little bit of everything. I personally love arepas. The arepa I tried at La Moon was filled with steak and cheese, plus I added their special sauce. I can’t even express in words how delicious this arepa was – melts in your mouth.
Then I had to try the famous Colombian bandeja paisa, or mountain plate. This out-of-control plate isn’t for the faint of heart. It comes with rice, red beans, pork belly, smoked sausage, sweet plantains, egg, arepa, steak, and avocado. Again, not for the faint of heart, but totally worth every bite. Just pretend you are on an episode of Man vs. Food!
Last but not least, I am sure you know that Colombians are known for having some pretty killer perros, or hot dogs. This supermoon perro had smoked sausage, bacon and quail egg. Hands down the best hot dog I have ever tasted.
