Caracas Arepa Bar
One of the hardest hit areas during Hurricane Sandy, the Rockaway’s have nevertheless regrouped in time for summer. And one of the first orders of business was to reinstate a few of their very popular food vendors on the boardwalk. The beachside branch of Williamsburg’s Caracas Arepas Bar was one of the first to return, and we can’t wait to get our hands on the La Gato — a grilled corn cake stuffed with fried sweet plantains, squeaky Guayanes cheese, and avocado slices. And since we just really love plantains, we’re not above ordering them as a side too, either topped with cheese or basted in cinnamon-plantain butter. Can’t stomach the Rockabus? You can always kick back in the yard of the Grand Street location with a basket of house-fried taro chips and creamy guacamole.
