The Milonga is a local business based in Canberra. We started it in May this year, with the idea of bringing joy and happiness to people in this hard year through a traditional sweet treat from Argentina.
We specialize in handmade Alfajores (al-fa-ho-res). We have different flavours but all of them got the same main concept. They are all made with a combination of rich dulce de leche (a soft, milk caramel-like filling), two crumbly and tender cookies, and a gentle coating of premium chocolate. On its own, the cookie might not be much to write home about, but when filled with our creamy dulce de leche the result is an almost shortbread-like dough that melts in your mouth when you bite into it.
Each alfajor is made from scratch from the cookie itself to the coating, and the patterns on top. They are all made with a lot of effort and love to deliver the best quality.
We sell them through via our website www.themilonga.com.au.
