Toronto may have a plethora of taco joints but as for Latin American food south of the Mexican border? Few and far between. Needless to say, I have been waiting to have good Venezuelan food for a very, very long time. What better place than at the Caracas Arepa Bar in the East Village in Manhattan?
Starting off with the Papelón con limón, which is a refreshing mix of dehydrated sugarcane and lime, I settled in to absorb the eclectic and vibrant lunchtime crowd.
