On a quiet corner in Crown Heights, La Ñapa looks like your everyday coffee shop. But this casual tapas spot is actually a well kept Venezuelan street food secret hiding in plain sight. They specialize in arepas, blue corn tamales, and chicharron. Come for dinner or weekend brunch with someone who likes eating pork.
