    An absolute must. Fresh through to the sauces. Cassava and tequenos are a great starter. Even the servers are awesome.

    Black bean soup is watery and oddly sweet. Stick to the arepas.

    Do not come here and waste your money or time! It is extremely expensive for what it is! Service only in English which sucks! Go to El Gordo Ex on 1048 Bathrust st! A lot better and cheaper! Trust me

    Deliciously perfect sized lunch. The Pulpo is damn good. The octopus is soo soft and tender, not chewy and gamy. Mmmm.

    As a Venezuelan, i can guarantee you'll have great authentic food in this place. If it's your 1st time, try the "Reina Pepiada" because it is the signature arepa. Blackberry juice is a must!!

    Messy as hell but tasty. The red sauce borders on being too hot for human consumption so use it sparingly.
