A patacon is a Venezuelan sandwich with fried discs of plantain instead of bread. At Patacon Pisao, you can get one of these sandwiches filled with meat, beans, fried cheese, special sauce, and a dusting of lettuce. It will be dense and filling, and, since there’s no bread, you could make the argument that it’s healthy. It isn’t, but who cares. Just know that there isn’t much seating here, and that this place also does things like arepas and empanadas.
