When a Venezuelan restaurant opened in the Boston suburb of Needham, many were skeptical and unsure of what the food would be like. Once they tasted Venezuelan Chef/Owner Antonio de Trizio’s handmade chachapas, they quickly became members of the Bolivarian Republic. Made with 12 ears of corn, tapioca flour, and plenty of butter and brown sugar, these tasty treats work well as an app or dessert and go great on their own. Like another traditional roadside attraction known as the arepa, they can be served in various forms, but de Trizio’s is among the best and has been bringing gringos from far and wide to taste truly authentic Latin American food.
