Lonely Planet review

This wonderful comida venezolana hotspot got an upgrade both in space and location, moving from the edgier center to the safe confines of Santa Eduvigis. Here you’ll find Chef Eduardo Castañeda’s healthy-ish takes on his country’s dynamic cuisine, from a Trinidad- and Tobago-influenced curried shrimp wrapped in roti to upscale tequeños , a local staple of bread dough stuffed with white cheese.
