Soon after publishing my review of Leche on Johnston St a friend emailed me and said ‘I need that arepa. We must go there for lunch.’ So yesterday we went for lunch and found ourselves one of several tables enjoying the coffee and sandwiches.
Whereas I had previously had the simpler $8 chorizo and cheese arepa without realising it, we ordered the more complex $9 one with mushroom and rocket, which was fantastic, as were the Cuban and frittata sandwiches we shared. Simple things done well are a joy to eat, and Leche is providing it. I’ve hopeful they turn this difficult location into a success.
