Patacón ?

I'm intrigued by this New York Times article and wondering if this Venezuelan plantain sandwich can be found in LA?

  1. La Perla Del Pacifico
    12727 Sherman Way Ste. #B-8
    North Hollywood, CA 91605

    See a great review here:

    1. Perla del Pacifico has the best patacon, but it comes as a side.You won't be disappointed because it is delicious.Get some to go and make yourself a sandwich.

      Cafe Bolivar and Coupa Cafe, the two venezolano places I know do not serve patacon sandwiches, just arepas, which in Venezuela are stuffed.Colombians eat patacones and arepas like bread with a meal.
