The Hallaca is a Venezuelan main course that is served on Christmas.

Enjoy a Venezuelan Christmas diner in the heart of “Le Marais” area, and discover our culture on a very nice setting.

Our main course, "Hallaca", is a mixture of cultures that are integrated with each ingredient. It’s been said its origin are from the time of Spanish colonization. The slaves and indigenous people were the ones who would prepare hallacas using only leftover ingredients they had access to. Hence the crossbreeding of this dish that consists of dough filled with a mix of meat stews wrapped in plantain leaves.
We will make "Pan de Jamon", a typical bread from Venezuela, and if you want you are welcome to participate to do it with us.

Hasta Pronto, A bientôt, Seeyou soon,
Gaby and Carlos

Je suis allé manger avec des amis chez Gaby et Krlos. Nous avons pu profiter d'un repas typiquement vénézuélien et j'ai vraiment adoré cette nourriture! Beaucoup de soin dans la préparation, très belle présentation, j'ai vraiment pu voyager en Amérique du Sud grâce à ces plats délicieux. Je vous encourage vraiment à aller tester ce repas les yeux fermés, vous m'en direz des nouvelles!!!!!! En plus: Gaby et Krlos sont vraiment des gens super souriant et sympathiques, cela fait vraiment plaisir.
