La Cumbia was born as a reponse to the Colombian community in Australia. Most colombians were missing the traditional dishes from Colombia an other Latin American countries.
I owned two other restaurants before located in the Colombian cities of Cartago and Quibdo. Just arrived in australia in 1997 I started a colombian food catering service. Later on I travelled to USA where I decided to get as much experience as possible as a cook. There I worked for one of the most famous restaurants in New Jersey with the idea of opening my own restaurant in Sydney as soon as I possible.
Our menu is partially inspired by my experience in New Jersey. Enjoy it!
La Cumbia is located in Kingsford, New South Wales.
