Arepas for lunch

Nancy, Radhika and I had wanted to go for lunch to Caracas Arepa Bar for quite some time now. We finally set a date and went this Friday.

We all had papelón con limón for a drink. It was cold, light and refreshing.
The decoration there is very picturesque.

They even have a Venezuelan’s worst presidents wall:
Carlos Andrés Pérez, Luis Herrera and, of course, Hugo Rafael Chávez.

For appetizers we had platanitos fritos con queso.

And tequeños. Y can’t go there and not have tequeños.

We were happy.

Very happy.

And then we had arepas. Both Nancy and Radhika had a Reina Pepiada.


And I had a pelúa (shredded beef and cheese).

Nancy said now she wanted to go to Venezuela to have more Venezuelan food. I said, me too Nancy, me too!
