Handmade Venezuelan food is the backbone of Vayalo Cocina, a Brooklyn street stand for arepas, tequeños, and more. If you’re sick of the lack of Venezuelan food throughout the boroughs, this is the place you need to be.
Arepas are the soul here, so don’t even consider leaving without any. The griddle cakes, split and stuffed with a variety of tasty meats, cheeses, and veggies, are a perfect street food snack, and not one you should pass up when you walk by Vayalo Cocina at Smorgasburg. Throw in some perros venezolanos—essentially Venezuelan hot dogs—topped with sweet potato fries and homemade sauces, and you’re in for a great meal. So why wait? Hit up Vayalo Cocina in New York, or book ‘em to cater your next event.
