Caracas Arepa Bar, NYC (Oct 27th)

yummy South American cuisine–
their take on guacamole, yummy
According to Wikipedia:
An arepa is a dish made of ground corn dough or cooked flour, popular in Colombia, Venezuela and other Spanish-speaking countries. It is similar in shape to the Salvadoran pupusa. Arepas can also be found in Panama, Puerto Rico and the Canary Islands.

We had the following:
Le Guasacaca: guacamole with home-made chips
Los Muchachos: grilled Chorizo, spicy white cheese with Jalapenos and sautéed peppers
La Mulata: grilled white cheese with Jalapenos, black beans, sautéed red peppers, and fried sweet plantains.
Reina Pepiada: chunky chicken and avocado mix salad

I can honestly say that it was great. There is another place I also like that has Empanadas. I want to go back and hope I can take some people with me for the experience. The place it small, like a galley kitchen’s space and the light it dim, as is Caracas. It seems more fun with the lights low. Also, if you go at the wrong time, you will not get a seat.

Here are some pictures.

There are two locations, with one being significantly larger than the other.

Enjoy your Latin American food.
