Lulo served Latin food created by Chef Matt Waldron. He combines modern and classic dishes, inspired by his trips to South America. I got a chance to meet his wife during my visits on a weekdays lunch time. She was friendly and warm, welcoming and also clearly a hard worker.

Lulo is a casual dining as well as bar, it's a bit more quite on day time but at night it turns into a lively dim lighting environment, suiting for a casual romantic date or after work drink with colleague. Reservations for groups is recommended.

Jamon Serrano, 7 Hermanos Gran Reserve aged 24 months ($28) and Crudo - yellow fun tuna tartare, crispy sweet potato, dried orange, capers, avocado ($16.2/2pcs). I have been developing quite a palate for cured meats and yes this jamon serrano is delicous that with finish it under 8 minutes. Then the most amazing crudo arrived, arguably one of the best I have ever tasted in Melbourne. Juicy fresh tuna with thin crisp sweet potato, creamy avo and a lil acidity from orange. Delicious.

Braised Pork Short Rib - chicharron crumb, coffee glaze, toasted coconut, pumpkin puree ($28) and Wagyu Picanha 6+ 250g - spicy moule ($45). At first, I wanted to order their ox tongue but sadly, the delivery have not arrived for the day so I my husband opted for the pork rib instead. While it's super tender and flavourful, the coconut seems a bit odd at first but it freshen up the dish quite well. But, I like the wagyu more. Wonderfull piece of meat, cooked perfectly with spicy chocolate moule sauce, unique, nicely matched the meat. Accompanied by super crisp tapioca chips, we love that so much.

We were pretty full so we wanted something light to share at the end. Three wonderful tart; rich chocolate, passionfruit meringue, salted caramel is the obvious choice. My husband loves the super rich chocolate ganache tart, I love the fresh sweet sour passionfruit tart and both of us has not problem devouring the salted caramel tart. Nice ending indeed.
