CARACAS is helmed by restaurateurs Gabriel and Jose-Luis Gonzalez.
A new casual dining concept aimed to bring flavours from Venezuela is set to debut in the UK.
Named after Venezuela’s capital city, CARACAS will open this October in Westfield London in White City. The menu, designed by brothers and restaurateurs Gabriel and Jose-Luis Gonzalez, is said to focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients showcasing the best of Venezuelan cuisine.
A signature item on the menu at CARACAS will be the arepa - a flat, dish shaped cornbread stuffed with a variety of high-quality, flavourful fillings including Shredded chicken with avocado, Braised beef with cheese; Braised beef with black beans and plantain plus a variety of vegan and vegetarian options.
Inspired by arepa bars across Venezuela (areperas), CARACAS says it aims to recreate the “fun, comforting and casual spirit” of these hubs in the UK. Looking to revitalise London’s lunchtime scene, CARACAS will give diners the option to fully customise their gluten-free arepas, with a wide selection of hot and cold fillings, garnishes, and sauces.
Another highlight on the menu will be CARACAS’ build-your-own ceviche bowls including their ‘Vuelve a la Vida’ (‘Come Back to Life’) bowl, which feature ingredients such as quinoa, salmon, avocado, plantain chips, crispy shallots, mango, coriander, cashews, sesame seeds, ponzu and lime mayonnaise.
