A late-night bar and grill serving up pretty great Colombian food and cocktails in Melbourne's east.

Set in the heart of Hawthorn, Lulo Bar & Grill is quietly one of Melbourne's best late-night dining spots. Chef Matt Waldron named the space for his Colombian-born wife Michelle (Lulo is Colombian slang for an attractive woman) and the menu also reflects his love. South American flavours feature in all of the large and small share plates, with notable highlights including the melt-in-your-mouth ceviche and the crispy skin pork belly with mushroom ponzu, guava and hibiscus — although we're also pretty partial to the sweet and salty Colombian churros filled with quince jam and dulce de leche being served up for dessert.
