Obsessed with . . .

Arepas! Falling under the rarely overlapping categories of "Genius" and "Street Food," arepas are totally my jam. Happily a second location of Caracas, the amazing areparia (OK, I just made that word up) in the East Village, has just opened in Williamsburg. I ate there twice last weekend, and I'm already planning my third visit. Arepas are Venezuelan corn patties with delicious fillings. While my pedestrian description may sound only so-so, Caracas's arepas are otherworldly. This is truly one of those foods where the whole is oh-so-much greater than the individual components. Trust me on this one. You gotta go check it if you haven't already.
