Fogata Latin Fusion

Fortitude Valley

Fogata Latin Fusion bar and restaurant in Fortitude Valley is a funky Latin American oasis of cool with a touch of the Caribbean on James Street.

With its airy inter-connected dining and drinking nooks with exposed brick, red and black walls with hanging ferns, pot plants, cane lounges and hessian stools, Fogata makes a great place for everything from a refreshing Caribbean cocktail, some Incan-inspired tapas, or a succulent meal of charcoal-grilled rump steak, Brazilian or Argentinian style.

The unique menu at Fogata Latin Fusion takes traditional dishes from regions of Latin America and the Caribbean and gives them a delicious local twist – think Moreton Bay Bug paella and Coconut (king tiger) Prawns in breadcrumbs and coconut flakes with lime mayo, or Ceviche with pineapple, coriander and garlic.
