Doggi's Arepa Bar

At an arepa bar, it's hard to think beyond the goodness of those crisp, off-white corn cakes. But at Doggi's, the fluffy cachapas are another Venezuelan delicacy worthy of attention. It's a semisweet, taxicab-yellow corn pancake filled with queso de mano and sometimes shredded beef. The texture of the kernels comes through in certain bites, and some areas of the pancake are topped with deep-golden spots for a touch of crunch and extra flavor. Sure, the place proffers large, tasty arepas with fillings ranging from Guayanés cheese to pabellón criollo, but the sweet cachapa just might capture your heart and taste buds.
