Biscuits and Gravy at Cabrito

Biscuits and gravy unlike you’ve had them before — dense house-made arepas disguised as biscuits. They’re mealy rather than fluffy, flavored by cornmeal, not buttermilk, and are smothered in a thick, chili-like chorizo gravy. It’s intensely smoky with a heat that creeps up on you — a tingle that starts at the back of your throat, then rushes to the tip of your tongue without warning. There’s not much to balance the spice save the yolk from the fried eggs on top.
