Justice of the Unicorns at Caracas for pre-show arepas. I thought I’d prefer the original Caracas in the East Village, but was glad to see the two girls (owners/chefs) that were featured on the Bobby Flay Throwdown. Made me feel at ease that I was getting the best of Caracas. I somehow ordered the Guasacaca & Chips saying “Guac and Cheese”. Luckily they knew I was a drunk and brought out the right thing I meant. Fried plantain chips with guac and that awesome sauce they have on the table was a perfect match. We also got Yoyos (fried sweet plantain balls stuffed with white cheese) which tasted like soft fluffy french toast balls. I got the special arepa with pork, avacado slices and chimichurri sauce. I kept squirting that sauce all over everything. So good. I thought we were going to finish the whole bottle.
