From Colombia and Venezuela. - Empanadas (Cheese-Beef-Chicken). - Plantain 'Patacon' (Beef-Pork-Chicken). Hot Dogs 'Perro Caliente' (Colombian-Mexican-Guacamole). - Cassava Stick 'Yuca'. - Sandwich (Cuban-Pork-Chicken). - Flour tortillas 'Flautas' (Cheese, Beef, Potatoes). - Grilled Corn 'Mazorca' (Beef-Pork-Chicken-Cheese). Very reasonably priced. You gotta eat here!
