Originally from Latin America, Luis opened Besos Latinos with his wife who is usually on the counter. After a successful 5 years of running the restaurant, the pair are looking to add some traditional Latin American dishes on the menu and asked some of us along to try them out.
|Home made corn chips with Guacamole and Salsa|
|Deep Fried Empanadas and Flautas|
The deep fried empanadas were filled with corn and courgette which made for quite a smooth filling. The guacamole and cheese topping was creamy and smooth, but I thought some heat would have gone well to counter this.
|Alambre with Corn Tortillas|
|Corn Tortilla with Spicy Chicken|
|Rose con Leche|
I am super excited for these new additions to the Besos Latinos menu and I can't wait to return for some of those Flautas! The dishes you've just read about, plus others, should be available from the start of June 2015.
Besos Latinos is located in Elliot Stables, 39 Elliot Street, Auckland CBD.
