Finally… Frank at Fonda…

What a frikkin good idea to frequent Fonda on this particular Friday…. Okay… it was a Tuesday but that ruins my alliteration attempt (haha! again)… Anyway, main point is that I had been keen to try Fonda for ages so when an ex-work colleague suggested it as a Richmond venue for a quick bite to eat I thought it was a FAB idea! I was concerned we would be waiting for a bit, maybe for a table or for food but it was super quiet at 1:30pm. Phew, because I was very hungry.

One great thing about this restaurant is that the menu is short so you could try everything in a couple of visits. Woot! To start and to share, we ordered pork scratchings with guacamole, corn chips with guacamole & salsa, and the corn… OH. MY. GOD…. The corn… It was the epiphany I expected when I ate the corn at Mamasita (that didn’t happen at Mamasita). I can’t really explain the difference except that the Fonda corn was creamier somehow…

“Do you think the pork scratchings are healthy?”

“Uuummmm… Yep, probably as healthy as prawn crackers…”

For mains we were both super keen on the beef taco and the fish taco so we got one each.. and then we were really, really full!

Great value. The perfect lunch spot… The sun even poked her head out enough for me to strip to a singlet top and enjoy a wonderful Melbourne afternoon…
