It's 3 o'clock Saturday morning, and you've been out drinking around Brickell. There's a good chance you'll be among the other hungry partygoers who flood this small restaurant for a hangover-curing, Colombian-style fast-food fix. But fast food at 3 a.m. is not the only reason people flock here. Weekdays at lunchtime, the humble spot is packed with execs and others in search of homey Colombian dishes. If you dare, try the SuperMoon perro ($5.85) - a hot dog topped with six sauces, crushed potato chips, and a quail egg - which was featured on the Travel Channel's Man vs. Food. The Moon burger ($5.50) and chicken burger ($5.50) are good choices too. And you can't go wrong with the daily lunch specials ($8.55): Wednesdays, enjoy the traditional ajiaco, or stop in on Thursdays for braised brisket with rice, potatoes, yuca, and salad. Service is friendly but spotty. Still, for reasonably priced Colombian fare that tastes home-cooked, La Moon fits the bill.
