    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.

    A cheerful neighborhood restaurant that serves up affordable Venezuelan classics. Meat lovers should go for the arepa pabéllon, packed with shredded beef, black beans, and fried sweet plantains.

    The vegan arepa is better than the vegetarian! Way more hearty and flavorful. It's like a hearty vegetable stew. And you can get it with cheese if you want

    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.

    I’m a fan of the peril, pabellon, jamon con queso, vegetariana, and vegana picante arepas. The carite frito and pabellon criollo dishes are also great. Wash it all down with a cocada.

    Awesome arepas coupled with even awesomer sauces! I always make the mistake of getting two when one is plenty filling.

    Can't go wrong with Empanada de Jamón y Queso & Arepa de Reina or Poblado (both are out of this world). The Maria cookie cake is worth trying too.

    If you're trying to avoid all the grease that naturally oozes out of the corn pocket goodness that is an arepa, get it as a plate on the side. Just as tasty and not as messy.

    Local spot with genuine food. Got the arepa a pabellon to take out which was the absolute bomb. I'd love to go back and try more stuff.

    Vegetarian arepa rocked. The tortilla shells are the real deal. Also the Venezuelan national drink (beet, carrot, etc juice) hit the spot.
