    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. Read more

    Quite good Venezuelan breakfast. Need to go back give more detail but I remember being happy with the flavors. Plus, fried cheese, can't go that wrong.

    Everything is good, but definitely get a De Pabellón, and put that sweet, spicy sauce all over it...
  • Dan B.
    Second someone else's opinion - 3 arepas between 2 people is perfect.

    Delicious arepas, addictive tequenos along with a "we're not playing" rum list and a tasty michelada, Caracas is a lasting favorite. The back yard is a fine place in summer.

    So many arepas, it took forever just to decide! Ending with a coconut milkshake was the right choice though

    Consistently delicious - been here 20+ times. Pro tips: Get 3 arepas per 2 people, get the guac and the Yoyos to start with. Get a pitcher of the passionfruit drink to wash it down!!

    They'll mix you up a dark spiced rum and iced coffee. It's like having a unicorn sit on your face.

    One arepa is enough per person. I recommend the one with just shredded beef and cheese. Also the fried plantains with cheese and mojo appetizer was delicious.

    The arepas are amazing. Los muchachos is a personal favourite. The service was great in this busy dinner spot. They do brunch too. I've never been, but I'd bet it's amazing.
