For lunch, meet me at La Biblioteca
By Jade Arroyo
Café Santa Ana, the restaurant/coffee shop at La Biblioteca, has been reinvented with vibrant new dishes created by a duo of young cooks, Ana Laura Mendoza and Omar Rivera, both gastronomy students at the UTSMA. Aside from the established menu with favorite classics such as the tortilla soup and the sandwiches, now the café features a daily special.
These specials comprise six different menus of three courses. Each one will be offered for one week and they will be rotated.
These menus are specially designed to be both healthy and delicious, focusing on balanced dishes for people with hypertension or diabetes: low in fat, sodium and potassium. They offer tasty and light food for summertime, such as “spring chicken” or lemon sorbet paired with a chocolate-covered strawberry. Does it sound inviting?
Give it a try the next time you come to check out books or shop at the Bodega de Sorpresas. The cool stone walls and shade from the big jacaranda tree offer a great refuge from May’s heat.
The daily special includes soup or salad, a main course, dessert and a beverage (lemonade, orangeade or coffee) and costs100 pesos.
