  • Head to Caracas and order "La del Gato". Mmm...
  • The waiters are not friendly at all! :(
  • All I have to say is: De Pabellon.
  • Douse whatever you get in the secret yellow sauce at your table. Seriously. DOUSE. ON WHATEVER.
  • The consensus here is to order De Pabellon, and we whole heartedly agree. Shredded beef, black beans, and cheese stuffed into a pocket bun. You'll want to come back after eating here.
  • Absolute must try for arepas! Very cozy inside with tight and limited seating.
  • get the michelada drink. best beer cocktail ever. spicy and sweet. mostly just delicious and problem-obscuring
  • Best Arepas in the USA
  • The 3 arepas to get: de pabellon (shreeded beef, sweet plantains, white cheese), la surena (chicken, chorizo, avocado), and la de pernil (roast pork shoulder, jalepenos, fried sweet plantains).
  • Order Tequenos to start and the De Pabellon arepa
  • A neighborhood favorite for spicy, saucy Venezuelan sandwiches. Gets cramped and noisy during peak hours.
  • Get the del Gato. One if you're hungry, two if you're starving, three if you're crazy.
  • Yo-Yos are some of the best things I have ever had. I've never had arepas like absolute must have.
  • The zesty vegetarian La Jardinera is recommended. Also the chorizo-filled Los Muchachos. Skip La Playera (fish arepa)--too bland.
  • Get la del gato and add shredded beef. Amazing blend of flavors.
  • Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar recommends the a de pabellon arepa.
  • arepas at caracas are great
  • I second the de pabellon
  • Name all your favorite ingredients & then order 'la surea' because they're all in there - chicken, chorizo, chimichurri, avocado! And if you don't lather in the homemade salsa, you're doing it wrong.
  • Pro tip: La del gato and tostones mochimeros. And a cocada. You're welcome.
