Get your empanada and arepa fix at this bright 30-seat café outfitted with colorfully painted walls and Italian ceramic-tile floors in Bed-Stuy. Choose from Latin American specialties, like pabellón arepa (shredded beef, plantains, black beans, salty white cheese, $7), grilled king fish with rice and plantains ($13) and tostones (fried green plantains with cheese, $7). Guacuco’s menu also includes plenty of empanadas with fillings ranging from ham and cheese to shredded fish (both $5). Traditional desserts like flan and chocolate cake with tea biscuits complete the meal (both $4). Wash it all down with cocada, a frozen coconut shake ($4) or beet-carrot-orange juice ($6).
