“Great place for real local food”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

If you like "empanadas" this is a great place. Far from fancy but really homemade. They basically sell "empanadas" of anything you could imagine. We stuck to traditional cheese, ham and cheese and the like and were great. Very thin dough and plenty of filling. They have Jr. sizes which are normal, but their regular size is big. They were so good that my 4 year old ate a big empanada by himself. They have some weird combinations - sea food, black beans, etc. I guess that if you can put it in the empanada, they have it. Also have "arepas" but we didn't try them. The other great thing - asides from the price - are the fruit shakes, awesome. Dense and cold. A great place to stop by if you really want to try a great local and traditional dish of eastern Venezuela. .
