I cannot believe I forgot to blog this! Of course, we went here before OMG Yum! was born but none the less I somehow forgot to look back at my previous photos and write about the yummy places I have been! I found La Caraquena through my in-laws. We went there for my birthday. I loved it so much that I had to take my family when they came to visit me last summer. We loved it again!!! 🙂 Mmmmm
Okay, so the most incredible thing happened to me today. A very lovely Venezuelan gal (Gaby from Antojitos de Tu Pais ***Little Cravings***) e-mailed me via OMG Yum! (my old food blog) because she found a blog post that I had written about Arepas. She sells legit Venezuelan food and Venezuelan food goodies (like cheeses and MALTA POLAR!). The best part is that she is in Fairfax and I am in Springfield! You must check her website out here!
She got me thinking about La Caraquena (Venezuelan Restaurant in Falls Church, VA)… I thought to myself, “I wonder if they know each other? Oh what a wonderful relationship that would be if they don’t.” It also got me thinking that I had not blogged about our food-scapade there! Hahaha so here it is!
