Foursquare Tips

  • Breakfast arepas, people!
  • Winner of Best Venezuelan in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Skip more common arepas for the pabellon criollo, a shredded beef dish.
  • A cheerful neighborhood restaurant that serves up affordable Venezuelan classics. Meat lovers should go for the arepa pabllon, packed with shredded beef, black beans, and fried sweet plantains.
  • The arepas (get the veggie or pabellon) give Caracas a run for its money. Get a side of plantains and their dense, bready, sticky caramel-y flan, or an icy, not-to-sweet coconut shake if it's hot out.
  • Order the Tostones and find out what heaven is like.
  • Village Voices #6 Best Restaurant in Bushwick
  • Great people and good food. Worth the time and the effort. Nice ambience and no rush or fuss.
  • Vegetarian arepa rocked. The tortilla shells are the real deal. Also the Venezuelan national drink (beet, carrot, etc juice) hit the spot.
  • Be transported to Venezuela. Try the empanada de cazon, the Jamon con Queso and Pabellon Arepas - finish with a coconut milkshake.
  • Really taken aback at how good the food is here. Vegetarian arepa was amazing. Killer sauces too. Save room for flan.
  • bomb ass arepas, delicious coconut milkshakes, great service, reasonable prices, and awesome music need I say more? gooooooo
  • My favorite brunch in the city. Try the desayuno capatalino.
  • Try the seafood arepa! It is amazing. Also the pabellon is a must!
  • Who knew mashed fish, arepa and spicy sauce could taste so good together. Not to forget the grilled plantains. This cuisine is slowly creeping to my top fav. Give this place a shot. Friendly staff.
  • tostones $7 + pabellon arepa $7 + cocada $4 = $18 for the perfect meal
  • The Pabellon Arepa is simply delicious, can't go wrong.
  • The Pabellon arepa and a coconut milkshake beat anything that "Caracas arepa bar" has!!... hands down!!
  • Brunch is amazing and never crowded. Try the desayuno capitalino!
