Julieta Cuisine Latine

Yes, “Latina” cuisine, not Peruvian or Argentinian or Venezuelan or Colombian but all of these and more, including Brazil. Why? Because the two owners of this new, tiny, 28-seat restaurant in the heart of the Petite Patrie neighbourhood in Montreal, Julieta Moros and Giselle Ruiz, believe that they are Latinas first, Venezuelan second. Julieta Moros – who is at the helm of Julieta’s kitchen – has worked in the kitchens of Mario Navarette Jr and Olive & Gourmando among others before opening this tiny restaurant.

I visited the newly opened restaurant on its second day of operation and was happily surprised that the food was absolutely delicious for such a new establishment. Everything is made on site by Julieta, using corn flour only so there’s not one speck of gluten used for all you gluten-sensitive people out there. The menu is eclectic and spans the many different Latin American cuisines as well as containing some original “Julieta” dishes. The concept is to “rescue” and bring back some forgotten dishes and reassign them to their respective countries in order to better understand the different Latina cuisines. Really though, no need to delve that deeply into the philosophy of things, just enjoy the fresh, creative dishes that are a pleasure to look at as well as to taste. The short yet well thought out menu will take you on a flavour-packed trip through Latin America and put some sunshine on your plate.

Dessert: pumpkin, sweet potato, pineapple syrup, pumpkin seeds and lulo (a tropical fruit) sorbet – Different and delicious!

I am looking forward to many more dinners at this tiny restaurant, as well as weekend brunches!
