I had picked this place out to try, but had to wait a day because I didn't realize they weren't open for supper. But I was glad I made a 2nd attempt!
I wasn't sure what the flavor profile of Venezuelan cuisine was, but was interested in something different. Besides, I knew they had a variety of coffees, and that's never a bad thing!
We had the ham croissant, the El Cubano sandwich, and 2 arepas - BBQ Chicken with avocado, and the veggies one. The 2 sandwiches came with slaw, but the folks eating the arepas ate most of the slaw. It was very flavorful - with both savory notes (soy and vinegar) and sweet (pineapples and carrots). The mojo on the El Cubano sandwich was much lighter than I usually expect from mojo - not as smoky or intense, but it balanced with the pork loin really nicely.
You can watch the corn cakes being made to order for the arepas - no question of freshness here! The BBQ Chicken was really good - a lighter BBQ sauce which worked well with the shredded chicken, and there were some other veggies on it, along with a generous portion of avocado. The veggie arepa was mostly the vegetables (eggplant, tomato, asparagus) - but also flavorful.
We actually didn't decide to have a dessert, but there was a wide variety to be had - at least 3 kinds of cake, and several different flavors of scones.
I'd definitely want to try another flavor of the arepas - it's a nice change of pace! The service was also good - friendly, and just attentive enough!
