As a result of the departure of more than five million Venezuelan migrants and refugees in recent years, Venezuelan cuisine has crossed borders. There are more and more restaurants in many countries that offer the public different dishes of this varied cookery.
Ideal for Breakfast
Venezuelan cuisine is ideal for breakfast since its most notable dish is the arepa, a bread made from corn flour that can be filled with almost any kind of food. Generally, the arepas are stuffed with different types of cheese, but also with meat, avocado, chicken, or even quail’s eggs. But also, empanadas are a fried and closed version, made of corn, accompanied by cachapas, which are sweet corn pancakes.
Combination of Meat and Rice for Lunch
Although Venezuelan cuisine is not as varied in its heavy meals, the most essential dish in this sense is the pabellón criollo, made up of shredded meat, white rice, black beans, and tajadas, which are slices of fried plantains. As for drinks, the stand out choice is the papelón con limón, which is made from dissolving water in brown sugar, accompanied by lemon.
