I haven't tried the 14th Street place you went to, but I have been to Caracas Arepa Bar at 91 E 7th Street. I thought the arepa was excellent! The website has a great pic of the one I had: DE PABELLON. shredded beef, black beans, sweet plantains and aged cheese. Go to caracasarepabar.com. The only drawback for me was the wait. I went on my lunch hour from work and aited a while to get mine, but they were busy, so thats a good thing. The place is about the same size as some apartments I looked in Brooklyn a few years ago. Very tiny, but they really maximize on kitchen space, they have to. I would get it to go as I'm a big guy I like a little space to sprawl when I eat out. What I really like about the arepas there is that I believe they use white corn and the corncakes aren't sweet and sticky like those dreadful "mozz-arepa" things that turn up at every street fair like a bad penny. The Caracas ones are tasty, yet showcase they really good ingredients inside. I'll have to try the one on 14th street. Oh, if you're looking for good Mexican below 14th Street (yeah, I think I'll throw Indy the idol and he'll throw me the whip!), I hear a new cart called (Calexo?) on Prince at Wooster Street is supposed to have some killer lunch grub. They were a finalist in the Vendy Awards this year!
