I wanted to get a picture of the coincidentally aligned mixer levels, but this damn margarita kept getting in the way.
I tried three more times, and after consistently repeated photobombs, gave up and decided to leave this awful place and get food.
I've always wanted to try this place. Opened up Google Maps on my phone, and realized it was only a few blocks away. It's a Venezuelan restaurant located in Chelsea that always seems pretty popular with the locals. Walked around the block two times before forcing myself to go in. Definitely my type of place. Small table settings, friendly service, not too quiet, and you don't feel out of place grabbing a meal on your own. I've been to a few arepas in the city, as well as in Venezuela, so I'm familiar with the food. What caught my eye when browsing the menu for this place was the description of the merengadas, traditional Venezuelan milkshakes made using juice and powdered milk.
GUANABANA MERENGADA Totally worth the social anxiety.
