Cachapa con Queso Guayanés

Cachapas are probably my favourite Venezuelan dish. They look a bit like pancakes, but they are made from fresh corn dough and they are also moister and fluffier with a bit of lumps from the corn kernels. If you have been to Colombia, they are a bit similar to arepas de choclo.

Normally, cachapas are fold and there is cheese inside. The typical one is called Queso de Mano, a soft white cheese similar to mozzarella. However, sometimes cachapas are filled with other types of cheeses like Guayanés, similar to Queso de Mano but a bit saltier. In Margarita Island there are a few good places to sample this delightful treat. So don’t miss trying it!
