When Cafe Ghia is too packed for brunch, I think Arepera Guacuco is an adequate backup.
I got the Desayuno Capitalino (Perico (which is scrambled eggs with tomato and onions), shredded beef, paisa cheese, black beans and a plain arepa $10). It was good, but you know what really took it over the top? The sauces! There’s three sauces in squeeze bottles. Peruvian/Venezuelan creamy green sauce, whatever that is, it rules. Also there’s a orange chipotle mayo type sauce and a green chile pepper sauce.
Shit. I’d just go for the sauces. Can I just order a beer and the sauces?
