It's a cornmeal pancake of sorts with a texture similar to a tamale. Owner/chef Lis Hernadez puts traditional Guayanés cheese atop the pancake along with a squirt of cilantro sauce. It was freakin' amazing. The cornmeal has a natural sweet flavor, and the cheese is slightly stringy and subtly salty like mozzarella. I added a considerable pool of a fiery pink hot sauce to the mix.
Cachapas are traditional street food in Venezuela and, according to Lis, can be topped with meats if desired. I suggest you go with friends, order an arepa each and a cachapa to share....

Thursday night, I hit Mi Barrio for my usual chicken mole, while Wayne devoured a gigantic goblet of ceviche. Good all-around.
The chicken mole, I remind you, is not on the regular menu, but I've never found it unavailable. Oh, and the restaurant is screechingly friendly to kids.

Your mom loves them, so there's that.
Yeah Big Al judging by your online reviews, your Buttermade burgers SUCK.
I won fair and square. Don't be jealous, my burger is simply THE BEST.
No Sublime? I'm sad. Even their coffee is amazing.
