Macondo Cafe @ Camden Passage, Angel


水・土曜日に開催されるアンティークマーケットで有名な、Angelのカムデン・パッセージ(Camden Passage)にあるカフェ、Macondoでランチをした。2003年にホクストン・スクエアにできたスパニッシュ・ラテンカフェの2号店。ギャラリーも併設した店内は、アート作品が壁を飾っています。デリから選べる食べ物の他、タコスやスパニッシュオムレツ等のラテン食、またケーキ類が充実している。土曜日の今日はとても混んでいて、スペイン人やイタリア人等ラテン系のお客も多々。私たちは、スパニッシュ・コロッケ、ラザーニャを注文。ラザーニャはイタリア人Mのお口に合ったようだが、ほうれん草の一杯詰まったコロッケは味が薄く、ちょっと残念。量が多いので、小食の方はご注意を。

今日、カフェの前を通ったけれど、Macondo Cafeはどうやら閉店してしまったようです。Macondoの前にあったカフェ2店も次々閉店したので、この場所は何か因縁があるのかも。

We had lunch at a Spanish/Latin cafe, called Macondo on Camden Passage, in Angel.  Camden Passage is known for the antique market on every Wednesday and Saturday. After their success in Hoxton Square, Macondo opened a second cafe in Angel in December 2007. Macondo has a variety of “Spanish/Latin American” foods as well as cakes/puddings, and there are some artworks on the wall of cafe/gallery. The cafe was crowded on today (Saturday), and there were some Spanish and Italians as well. We ordered Spanish croquets and Lasagna – Italian M liked the Lasagna, but my croquets with spinach didn’t have any taste… The amount was huge, so be careful if you are not so hungry!

I passed by Macondo Cafe today and it seems to be failed. Two cafes before Macondo also closed in a short period time, and the place may be cursed…
