Village Voice's Description

This Venezuelan food truck is ensconced in a permanent location, where it sizzles up patacons, cachapas--voluminous sweet-corn pancakes folded around fillings--and empanadas until the early morning hours. The specialty is the patacon--a marvelous, meaty sandwich that substitutes large disks of fried green plantain for bread. The CD-size orbs are made by slicing unripe plantains lengthwise, frying them, then pounding them thin. For a filling, choose from the chicken, stewed shredded beef, or pernil, though the beef is best, barbecue-brisket-like in its succulence. For the optimal experience, most patrons order the "full"--an extravaganza of all three meats, plus fried cheese, and the standard lettuce, tomato, cilantro, and dousing of crema.
