Come hungry since the fried plantain sandwiches (patacón) and arepas are huge. Then there’s la gorda cachapa, sweet corn cakes enclosing double-smoked bacon and a thick slab of melting mozzarella. Liliana Velazquez, from Maracaibo, Venezuela, started the business as a food truck in 2005, since expanding—with the help of her son Jonathan Hernandez—to brick-and-mortar shops in Elmhurst, Queens, and on the Lower East Side. Everything is made fresh to order and worth waiting for.
