Guacuco Bed Stuy
Venue says THE BEST AREPERA VENEZOLANA! Visit us in Bushwick or Bed Stuy!

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).

Guacuco Bed Stuy says
Bed Stuy's newest Venezuelan spot for arepas, empanadas, juices, and drinks. The Village Voice’s Best Venezuelan Restaurant in New York City, Guacuco started just a few years back as a family affair in Bushwick. Chef Carmen and her son Leonardo Molina brought some of the best Caribbean Cuisine from Venezuela’s Margarita Island right to the heart of Brooklyn's growing international community. This is our second location and we couldn't be more excited to share it with you.

The best goddamn arepas and empanadas that you can get for $10 per head! The portions are pretty generous here so an order of two arepas and a side of empanadas is more than enough for two greedy people. The beef arepa is especially tasty and is great washed down with the amazing coconut milkshake (their words, not mine but a truth no less).
