Good Venezuelan food in the Seattle area?

Hey everyone: my Venezuelan husband, Luis, and I just moved here and we're searching for different types of authentic food, including venezuelan food (arepas, cachapas, queso de mano, desmechada, etc) Does anyone know a good place? Also, he would like to buy some VZ coffee (El Pinon, Fama de America, etc). Thanks!
I understand that Meza on Capitol Hill serves an arepa, but I don’t know of anyplace in the area that actually specializes in Venezuelan cuisine. I only wish there were!
I've been to a couple of places that had some Venezuelan dishes, but both seemed to disappeared or changed. For a while there was place in Lynnwood that focused on Cuban and Venezuelan food, doing mostly delivery. That has closed. Last year I had lunch at a place in downtown Everett that had a mix of South American food, but I can't find it online.
As for buying items, various Latino shops sell a mix of items from Latin America. The largest up north that I know of is Plaza Latina in Shoreline, 99 just south of 175th.
