IT'S A LATINO THING
Buena Onda & Co. brings to Melbourne the unique flavours of Latin America in the most delicious and delightful way.
Born from a love of Latin America’s flavours and culture, Buena Onda & Co. was developed by Alejandro Vega and Natalia Sikiric.
Alejandro originally hails from Chile and migrated to Australia to pursue a career as one of the country’s leading percussionists. It was Alejandro’s yearning for the unique flavours of home, coupled with Natalia’s love of cultures (+ her insatiable sweet tooth) that led to the concept of Buena Onda & Co. being born. After many annual South American pilgrimages and an extensive development period, Natalia fused a number of traditional recipes to develop the signature dessert menu of Buena Onda & Co. As a photographer, her approach to baking is an extension of her creative process. Her enthusiasm as a foodie and for making ‘all things beautiful’ also ensures that each sweet offering is presented in the most enticing way.
Buena Onda & Co. is a cultural experience for the senses. We live by the traditional Latin American ethos of warm hospitality, friendliness and as our name translates, ‘Good Vibes’.
