Location and contact


Empanadas are like Venezuelan hot pockets or calzones. We usually serve them as appetizers (small ones), or as a main dish w/ delicious fillings & dipping sauces. Empanada fillings are as varied as Arepa fillings, & we use some of the same fillings that we use in Arepas as well.
A fried breaded cheese stick or a spear of bread dough w/ queso blanco (white cheese) in the middle.
Perro Caliente
A delicious hot dog topped w/ bacon, ham, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese & a combination of secret sauces & other ingredients.
Arepa is a flatbread made of ground maize dough or cooked flour prominent in the cuisine of Colombia & Venezuela. It is eaten daily in those countries & can be served w/ various accompaniments such as cheese, avocado, or split & used to make sandwiches. Various sizes, maize types, & added ingredients are used to vary its preparation. It is similar in shape to the Mexican gordita & the Salvadoran pupusa.
Pabellón Criollo
Pabellón criollo is a traditional Venezuelan dish, the local version of the rice & beans combination found throughout the Caribbean. It is a plate of rice, shredded beef in stew & stewed black beans that is considered by many to be the Venezuelan national dish.
The hefty sandwiches resemble burgers, save for one key difference—rather than bread, the "bun" is two disks of flattened plaintain. Thanks to a combination of ketchup, mayo & the restaurant's special sauce (made from a secret combination of veggies) this carne mechada patacón. Sandwiched between the crunchy, nutty-tasting fried disks is a generous helping of stewed shredded beef, topped w/ lettuce & the aforementioned condiments. Those ingredients would be perfectly tasty on their own, but there's also a small disk of slightly salty fried cheese.
Cachapas are made w/ fresh corn, a bit of butter, cream & salt. The resulting pancakes are soft & flexible, & can be easily folded over a filling. Stuff them w/ Queso Guayanes or just serve them w/ butter.
The pepito is a Venezuelan street food favorite: a beef (or chicken) sandwich, drenched w/ sauces & condiments
Yuca Y Carne
Yuca y Carne is Cassava & Beef dished prepared w/ special condiments & topped off w/ our secret El Chamo sauce recipe.
A type of flan made w/ whole eggs & sweetened condensed milk, which makes for a firmer texture than traditional flan.
Cocosette Bars
Traditional Venezuelan coconut wafer bars.
Dulce De Papya
Green papaya‏ caramelized sweet treat.
