Cachapas

In foreign places, some people look over an imperceptible menu and try to find something they recognize; I do just the opposite, and pick what I have no idea the dish to be.

Sometimes this works out well; other times not.  But curiosity hasn't yet killed this cat with a case of salmonella.

As such, today I tried something called a cachapa. It was like a giant corn flapjack pancake folded over and filled with carne mechada- shredded barbecued meat.  I slathered a chili sauce on top of this Venezuelan hot cake.  It was pretty good, and very filling.



Perhaps this is the Venezuelan equivalent of chicken and waffles?

Perhaps IHOP should take note if they really want to be International.
