Venezuelan Restaurants?

  • m

A friend from NYC told me about a favourite Venezuelan restaurant, and I wondered if anyone had been to, or heard of, such a thing in the GTA.

Apparently the food was a sort of Caribbean and Latin American fusion: lots of grilled seafood and coconut. Sounded pretty good.

  1. I know of Mercadito, 798 St. Clair West. I've yet to go (it's for later this week).

      From what I've heard, Mercadito is the only Venezuelan restaurant in the city. I've been once, but didn't eat a full meal, just an arepa and salad. I enjoyed the arepa, but can't really comment on the rest of the food there. My friend had some sort of beef dish, which she enjoyed.

      Any other Venezuelan restaurants in Toronto? It looks like Mercadito has closed.
