Sabor Venezolano is easily mistaken for just another taco truck in the taco truck ocean that is Houston. How mistaken would you be, my friend. You really need to come here and order what is probably the best Venezuelan food in town. The fact that they are open Very late night (4am+) only makes it that much better.

For the uninitiated, Venezuelan food is very heavily meat and cheese influenced, basically every single dish will have some sort of meat and/or cheese in it. The staple of Venezuelan food is the Arepa, which is basically a dough patty which is then filled with your choice of meats and cheeses. The arepas here are goodt, better than the competition at Miguelitos. Of the almost limitless choices you have for your arepa filling I would recommend the regular ham and cheese, the "pelua" which is shredded beef and gouda, and the "Reina Pepiada", a wonder-ful concoction which includes chicken, avocado, and mayonnaise.

Another good choice for typical food that you wont find almost anywhere else are the "cachapas". Cachapas are basically sweetcorn pancakes doubled over and filled with hand-made soft white cheese called "queso de mano" that is only made in Venezuela. On top, you'll find a shredded, salty, hard cheese called "queso de ao" which counters the sweetness of the cachapa perfectly. All this should be covered with copious amounts of butter for a real authen-tic experience (healthy huh?). My gripe with the cachapas here is the same I have with mi-guelitos which is that while they are amazing, the length of time that the soft cheese and pre-made sweetcorn pancakes take to be imported dampens the overall quality. If you've ever had one in Venezuela you'll know that while these are good, they can be SO-MUCH-BETTER. Nevertheless, it is a great place to satisfy your fix, and you can't really blame them for the quality of the cheese, though it would be awesome if they made the cachapa pancakes in-house.

Overall, Sabor Venezolano is really the place to go for your Venezuelan food fix, cheaper prices and better food make it a complete no brainer. Add to it that you can hit it up after a long night of partying, and well, it doesn't get any better.
