Fodor's Review

An old-school Caracas arepa joint, Budare serves up freshly made arepas and cachapas with flair and a wee bit of attitude. There's a huge variety of stuffing options for your arepas; among the most popular are local cheeses such as queso de mano and queso telita. Also scrumptious are the meat options, including carne mechada (shredded beef) and reina pepiada (avocado-and-chicken salad). Be sure to get a batido de fruta, or a fruit shake—we recommend parchita (passionfruit) or lechosa (papaya). This is the best place to end any bar-hopping or theater-going evening: the restaurant is open 24/7, 365 days a year—yes, even on Christmas.
