When you need to satisfy a craving for homemade Colombian food, head to this vegan spot in Park Slope, run by Colombian-American brothers and co-owners Alex and Danny Carabaño. They make plant-based versions of Colombia’s national dish, bandeja paisa (a mixed platter of sausage, ground beef, rice, red beans, chicharrón, arepas, plantains, avocado, and a fried egg), chichapapas (sazón-seasoned Belgian fries with crispy chicharron made with “wheat meat”), and plátanos maduros (whole sweet plantains) stuffed with refried beans and seasoned ground seitan molida. Grab a platter and enjoy a vegan feast in their outdoor garden. Or if you’re in a bit of a hurry, grab an arepa con todo to-go. These handmade crispy corn arepas with vegan mozzarella, Colombian red beans, fresh guacamole, ground seitan carne molida, and salsa roja are juicy, meaty, and designed to be inhaled as quickly as possible.
