Valencia Luncheria, 172 Main Street, Norwalk, CT www.valencialuncheria.com
Today, we visited Valencia Luncheria which serves the best Venezuelan food, and of course breakfast! Chef Michael John has been serving Venezuelan Beach Food here for over 8 years! And he’s FAMOUS for it! The Food Network’s Guy Fieri LOVES Valencia so much he autographed the wall! And tonight they will be on the Cooking Channel at 10 o’clock!
Venezuelan breakfasts are delicious and BIG! I had an Egg, Bacon and Cheese Arepa. Arepas are corncakes that are stuffed with all sorts of good food. Valencia has over 30 different kinds of them! I also had a pancake – which comes with tropical fruit — BUENO!
For my drink, I had a Chocolate Batido which is like a smoothie and very good – I even drank part of my dad’s which was made of Guava!
Here’s where the BIG SURPRISE comes in! – Valencia supports artists by showing their work… right now, they are showing paintings by Jay McKinnney, who works at my School! Mr. Jay Jay’s art is really colorful and fun – one painting even has flying pigs!
Valencia is very popular with kids – over half the people there were kids!
