Miami New Times' Description

Awarded by New Times for having the Best Arepas in 2009, this small, nondescript eatery is situated in a small strip mall. You'd never guess the goodies that await you inside. The place is loaded with indigenous crafts and trinkets, and the staff is friendly and helpful to newbies - someone will gladly explain any menu item you don't understand. Due to its size, Caballo Viejo isn't an ideal place for large groups, but it's an awesome place to dine with a few friends. Popular dishes include hallaca sola, a Venezuelan stew wrapped in a cornmeal pancake ($7.50), and hallaca con ensalada de gallina, an hallaca sola served with chicken salad ($9.50). If you're in the mood for something meaty, try the pabellon criollo ($10.95), shredded meat, white rice, black beans, and fried sweet plantains, or parrilla caballo viejo ($20.95), which includes grilled sirloin steak, pork chops, sausage, and blood sausage. Of course, the ever-so-popular arepitas blancas o mixtas ($2.95), mini cornmeal patties plain or stuffed, are a must-have - we did award name them Best Arepas, after all...

    I rarely praise an empanada other than my own, but the ones here are Amazing.

    El asado negro es el mejor, lo tienen todos los sabados como especial, y los viernes tienen una crema de vegetales espectacular!
