Another example of the multi-ethnic cuisine available in New York, the Caracas serves delightful 'areperas' and 'taguaritas' from Venezuela. This tiny eatery is grabbing the fancy of New Yorkers and threatening to replace their penchant for pita or tortillas. The spongy cornflour coverings are stuffed with a wide choice of fillings like black beans, sweet plantains and cheese, mashed chicken with avocado and the list is almost endless. Served with bowls of nata (sour cream), the arepas are irresistible. Next time you are in East Village, try it out.
