  • The yo-yo gets a sugary makeover at Caracas. Sweet plantains are fried in a cinnamon-spiked plantain batter, then theyre stuffed slightly chewy, fresh cheese and served with honey dipping sauce.
  • Perfect meal: Tequeos, La Surea and Jugo de Parchita!
  • Is there anything not to like?
  • Get tequeos!
  • I regularly crave the ensalata fresca. Watercress, avocado, roasted tomatoes, cukes, cotija & magical plantain chips hidden underneath. Oh and passion fruit dressing. One of my fave salads anywhere.
  • Order (in this order): A beer + shot of rum for $1, the Yoyos and/or plantain chips and La Surena. #dareyounottoloveit
  • The roomier location of this East Village favorite for saucy, spicy Venezuelan sandwiches.
  • De pabellon arepa. Shredded beef, black beans, cheese, sweet plantains. It's a religious experience in your mouth. Less crowded than east village location.
  • Besides arepas filled with shredded beef and grilled pork sausage, Caracas Arepa Bar offers a slew of vegetarian options. Veggie options include The Leek Jardinera.
  • The chicken chorizo arepa can't be beat. The sauce on the table should be slathered on everything you eat. Grab a seat on the patio when the weather is nice!
  • If you're a small person, one arepa is enough.
  • You can never go wrong with La Mulata. Or taqueos.
  • Get the del Gato. One if you're hungry, two if you're starving, three if you're crazy!
  • This place has fantastic, affordable arepas that will make you crave Caracas at least once a month. The sauce is good on everything, and even the coffee is amazing. Did I mention CHEAP!?
  • Vegetarian options are amazing. Very tasty, and friendly staff.
  • The drink and hot sauce here enhance its food!
  • Everything is great. Make sure to get into the sauce.
  • Get the De Pabellon. It's amazing! Put their house sauce all over it.
  • The rum Manhattan cocktails are actually really awesome!
  • White sangria is yummy ! :)
